Plot

[edit]

American CIA agent Ethan Renner works with a squad to capture the Albino, the lieutenant to an arms trafficker (chosen the Wolf) who is selling a dingy bomb to terrorists in a hotel in Belgrade.[6]
The Albino deduces the trap when he recognizes one of Renner’south fellow agents (disguised as a chambermaid), whom he kills. Renner, all of a sudden light-headed as he pursues The Albino, but manages to cripple him by shooting him in the leg, then blacks out, allowing the Albino to escape. Meanwhile, elite CIA assassin Vivi Delay, a “Top Shelf agent”, has been personally assigned by the Director to kill the Wolf. Vivi monitors the functioning and suspects Renner has unknowingly seen the Wolf.

Renner is nearly disabled by an extreme cough, which is diagnosed equally terminal glioblastoma cancer that has spread to his lungs. He is given but a few months to live, and will not see the adjacent Christmas. For decades he has kept his dangerous career a carefully guarded cloak-and-dagger from his wife Christine and daughter Zooey, at the cost of losing them. He decides to spend his remaining time trying to set his relationship with his estranged daughter, and if possible, his ex-wife. He returns to Paris, where he and his family unit alive separately, to discover the Réunion family of Jules is squatting in his flat. He is told past the law that he is not permitted to evict indigent squatters until after the winter. He makes an awkward reconnection with Christine, and tells her of his final disease. She allows him to reconnect with Zooey, and when she has to exit of the country on business concern, she agrees to let him look after Zooey.

Vivi recruits him to find and kill the Wolf, in commutation for an experimental drug that could extend his life significantly. Renner reluctantly accepts, to get more than time with his family. Vivi tells him the mode to trap the Wolf is by getting the Albino, in turn by getting his accountant, in turn by kidnapping the gang’s limousine commuter. All the while Renner is fighting the hallucinogenic effect of the medicine, which occurs whenever his eye rate goes likewise high, and which he can only control by consuming alcohol. He must besides deal with Zooey’s school problems, including her habit of lying then she can sneak out partying. He manages to keep her out of trouble, and slowly reestablishes a begetter human relationship with her, which impresses his married woman.

He tracks the Wolf and the Albino into the subway, just they gain the upper hand when he is disabled by the hallucinations. The Albino attempts to kill him by pushing him in forepart of an oncoming train, but Renner manages to push the Albino on the rails instead. The Wolf escapes, and so contacts a concern partner who can help him to flee the country.

The family is invited to a party thrown by Zooey’due south boyfriend’south father, who happens to be the Wolf’southward business partner. Renner manages to protect Christine and Zooey, kill all the Wolf’s men, and trap the Wolf in an elevator before breaking the cables, causing the motel to free-fall to the ground. The Wolf survives, severely injured, merely Renner is again disabled and, also feeling guilty for all the damage his piece of work has done to his family unit, he’s all of a sudden unable to pull the trigger, and drops his gun where the Wolf can get it. Vivi intervenes and kicks the gun back to Renner, telling him to cease the task and kill the Wolf, but he decides not to, because “I promised my wife I’d quit.” Vivi then kills the Wolf.

At last retired, Renner survives to Christmas, which he is spending at a beach firm with Zooey and Christine. He discovers a small-scale, ruddy wrapped gift parcel, which contains another vial of the cancer medicine. Vivi is seen on a hill behind the business firm smiling as Renner opens the package.
