John Porter leads a covert British operation in Iraq in 2003. With his elite SAS unit, Porter is well behind the enemy lines. His mission is to liberate an arms dealer from the hands of hostage-takers. But then the mission ends in fiasco: All members of his team die, except him and another soldier named Hugh Collinson. Porter takes full responsibility for the failure and leaves the army. Seven years later, Collinson approaches Porter to help him rescue a journalist. At the meeting, Porter encounters an old acquaintance. A boy whose life he spared on his mission to Iraq is one of the hostage takers.
