Buren (Jean Reno) is a legendary cop, famous for bending the rules. In the Paris underworld, his team aren't afraid to use their muscles and guns to enforce the law however they see fit. With their every move under the scrutiny of Lenoir, their new boss, Buren knows his time is running out. When a deadly heist turns into murder, Buren follows his instincts and raids the house of a former convict. However, he has a rock-solid alibi and Buren is forced to release him. Sidelined, Buren and his squad disobey Lenoir's orders to try and stop a dangerous bank robbery. The operation is a blood bath and Buren takes the fall for it at the expense of his career. When he realises that the heists are part of a bigger operation, he decides to take urgent action to prevent any further casualties.
