A successful and respected lawyer (Michael Fassbender) was almost on top of success and coming close to his own wedding with his beautiful and naive fiancee Laura (Penelope Cruz). Of curiosity, and of course, to make some quick cash he agrees to the offer of his old friend Reiner (Javier Bardem), who close ties with the criminal underworld. An illegal business deal is to transport cocaine of $20 million worth from Mexico to the United States. He receives many warnings from philosophizing and shady middleman Westray (Brad Pitt) about the dangerous world that he is getting involved. But his warnings go unheeded. One day the illegal business came out of control…
The film is dedicated to the memory of the director’s brother Tony Scott, who committed suicide during production.
