Divorcé de Bobbie Jo, il s'occupe dès qu'il peut de sa fille Sadie, qui participe à des concours de beauté pour enfants. Jimmy est engagé sur un chantier en Caroline du Nord, sur le circuit Charlotte Motor Speedway. Mais il est licencié en raison d'une blessure non déclarée au genou. Très remonté et sans un sou, il convainc son frère Clyde, ancien soldat en Irak et amputé d'un bras, de commettre le braquage de la chambre forte du circuit, équipée de tubes pneumatiques. Pour mener à bien leur plan, ils s'associent au spécialiste des chambres fortes Joe Bang, pourtant incarcéré à Monroe. Ce dernier exige que ses deux frères, Fish et Sam, soient aussi de la partie. Les frères Logan peuvent aussi compter sur leur sœur, Mellie, qui tient un salon de coiffure. Cette petite équipe va donc commettre ce braquage sur la légendaire course de NASCAR Coca-Cola 600, durant le Memorial Day.

Recently divorced Meg Altman (Foster) and her 11-year-old daughter Sarah (Stewart) have just purchased a four-story brownstone on the Upper West Side of New York City. The house's previous owner, a reclusive millionaire, installed an isolated room used to protect the house's occupants from intruders. The "panic room" is protected by concrete and steel on all sides, a thick steel door, and an extensive security system with multiple surveillance cameras, a public announcement system, and a separate phone line. On the night the two move into the home, it is broken into by Junior (Leto), the previous owner's grandson; Burnham (Whitaker), an employee of the residence's security company; and Raoul (Yoakam), a ski mask-wearing gunman recruited by Junior. The three are after $3 million in bearer bonds, which are locked inside a floor safe in the panic room.
