A missing teenage girl. A brutal and tormented enforcer on a rescue mission. Corrupt power and vengeance unleash a storm of violence that may lead to his awakening. The antihero is Joe, played by Joaquin Phoenix, who lives with his elderly mother in the house where he spent his traumatized childhood. Joe is a former soldier and law enforcement officer who now works in the murky area of “private security”, carrying out wet jobs, and much admired for his unhesitating brutality and efficiency in leaving no trace of it.
But then he is given a new commission, he has to recover a teenage girl, Nina (Ekaterina Samsonov) the daughter of an ambitious young politician, Senator Votto (Alex Manette) who has joined the ticket as a running mate for the campaign of a certain Senator Williams, played by Alessandro Nivola. Nina has apparently been lured into some kind of sex-trafficking ring and his employer wishes Joe merely to rescue her discreetly while giving him carte blanche to mete out whatever retributive violence comes naturally. For his part, Joe sets up a meeting with Votto in an anonymous New York hotel where he is confident he can deliver Nina. But things go horribly wrong.
