Life is generally going well for Jack Stanfield (Harrison Ford). He's been running the computer system at his bank for a while now, and it looks like things are on track for the merger to go through, meaning that the small 26-bank operation is about to become part of a much larger company.
The only bad part about that is that it means that he won't be a part of the day-to-day operations any longer. But it does mean that he can slow down and take some time with his family, and no one will be sad about that. It's too bad that some other people have other plans for him - and his family - before this can all go through.
It seems that Bill Cox (Paul Bettany) has decided to make a play for some of the bank's money, and he's targeted Jack in order to get at it. After all, why go directly to the money, when you can go after the man who protects the money instead?
