The film is about Kate Abbott (Milla Jovovich), a Diplomatic Security Service agent for the United States Embassy in London. He worked for the government after the 9/11 tragedy claimed the lives of his friends.

One day, Abbott was trying to develop a new visa system to allow for more stringent screening of potential terrorists into the country.

However, when he was attending a birthday party for Bill Talbot (Robert Forster) with his friends, a bomb exploded. Abbott and Bill survived the bomb, while their friends died at the scene.

American authorities then launched an investigation into the bomb attack. They
finds clues that the bomb has traces of chromium, thus suspecting the attack was carried out by someone nicknamed the Watchmaker (Pierce Brosnan).

Watchmaker is known as one of the most wanted fugitives in the world. This figure is also known as a precision killer in carrying out his acts of terror, including when he used a bomb with a similar trail in Paris two years earlier.

However, no one knows the Watchmaker’s true identity. He is known to have repeatedly undergone plastic surgery over the years.

Abbott’s suspicions of Watchmaker’s involvement in the attack are growing. He found other evidence that showed the attack had a connection with Talbot.

The reason is, Abbott suspects that Talbot has been blackmailed by the Watchmaker into giving access to a number of visa applicants so they can enter America. The search also uncovered plans to detonate another bomb in Times Square, New York, during New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Abbott then continues his investigation until he is unexpectedly attacked by Talbot. They were involved in a fight until Talbot accidentally took himself.

The incident was caught red-handed by a number of witnesses and CCTV footage, so Abbott was caught and became the main suspect in the attack. He also has to find a way to free himself while uncovering the facts behind the conspiracy.

Kate is tasked with tightening up her visa application. While processing visas for potential terrorist suspects, most of his team die celebrating the birthday of their boss, Bill Talbot, who is the father of Johnny Talbot. Kate survived the bombing because she left the restaurant at the last minute. At that time Bill had not arrived at the restaurant and delayed because he was blackmailed with death threats for Johnny.

After it was discovered that there were traces of chromium, investigators suspected that the culprit was The Watchmaker who was a high-class murderer and fugitive.
