Macdonald est l'unique survivant d'un gang qui a réalisé un vol à main armée dans une banque, avec un butin record : 20 millions de dollars. Après le braquage, une fusillade oppose les gangsters. On retrouve deux morts, et Macdonald est grièvement blessé à la tête. Devenu amnésique, il passe sept ans dans un établissement psychiatrique de haute sécurité. Le butin a disparu, et il est le seul à pouvoir permettre de le retrouver. Un nouveau patient, Lucas, lui propose de l'aider à s'évader. Une fois en liberté, Lucas et ses complices, Erin et Farren, lui expliquent leur plan : on va lui injecter un sérum expérimental qui lui permettra de retrouver la mémoire. Le traitement fonctionne, et le passé de Mac lui revient par flashbacks. Ils partent tous les quatre à la recherche du butin, mais la police locale et le FBI sont à leurs trousses.

Sam Ellis (Patrick Wilson) is a man on the rise – a hot-shot prosecutor on the cusp of a bright future. When an intern (Dianna Agron) at the office becomes infatuated with him, Sam unwisely attempts to quiet his desires by seeing a high class escort — only to discover that the experience is more fulfilling and exhilarating than he could have imagined. A second appointment with an escort soon follows, and a third, sending his once idyllic life spiraling out of control. In the midst of wrestling with his demons, he suddenly finds himself being groomed to run for U.S. Congress — thrusting him into the public spotlight, and forcing him to take increasingly dangerous measures to keep the press, the law and his wife (Lena Headey) off his trail.
