After being knocked unconscious, he comes to and his cell phone rings: he has three hours to get Sartet, a man under police surveillance, out of the hospital. Samuel quickly finds himself pitted against rival gangsters and trigger-happy police in a deadly race to save the lives of his wife and unborn child.

Producers on the remake include Stephen Levinson and Mark Wahlberg, with no mention as of yet whether or not the latter might also be interested in starring in the film.
