For as long as he can remember, Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) has had the
uneasy feeling that he's living someone else's life. When he stumbles upon an
image of himself as a little boy on a missing persons website, all of Nathan's
darkest fears come true: he realizes his parents are not his own and his life is
a lie, carefully fabricated to hide something more mysterious and dangerous than
he could have ever imagined.
Just as he begins to piece together his true identity, Nathan is targeted by
a team of trained killers, forcing him on the run with the only person he can
trust, his neighbor Karen (Lily Collins). Every second counts as Nathan and
Karen race to evade an army of assassins and federal operatives. But as his
opponents close in, Nathan realizes that the only way he'll survive - and solve
the mystery of his elusive biological father - is to stop running and take
matters into his own hands.
