Eric Packer (Pattinson), a top hedge fund trader, jumps into a limousine in New York City in order to get a haircut from his barber, whose shop is at the other end of the city. But when a visit from the US President brings Manhattan traffic to a complete stop, Eric is trapped in the car as chaos sets in and he realises his fortune is evaporating. His paranoia intensifies as he begins to realise that someone is trying to assassinate him, but he doesn’t know where or when.
