Perry (Ewan McGregor) and Gail (Naomie Harris) are a couple vacationing in Morocco, in an effort to improve their troubled relationship. Perry is approached by a Russian man named Dima (Stellan Skarsgård), who reveals himself as the head money launderer for the Russian mafia. Dima fears that he and his family will be killed after he signs away his accounts to the new mafia head and Dima provides Perry with information to give to MI6 when he gets back to London. After checking into this intel, Agent Hector (Damian Lewis) informs Perry and Gail that Dima will only cooperate further if the couple are used as middlemen. As such, Perry and Gail head off to help facilitate an acquisition of information, in exchange for Dima and his family’s safety.
