After Russian Mafia leader Semyon’s (Armin Mueller-Stahl) son, Kirill (Vincent Cassel), orders an unapproved hit on a rival Chechen leader, he recruits the family driver, Nikolai (Viggo Mortensen), to clean and dispose of the body in the river Thames.

Viggo Mortensen and Academy Award® nominee Naomi Watts star in this electrifying thriller from critically acclaimed director David Cronenberg (A History of Violence). Criminal mastermind Nikolai (Mortensen) finds his ties to a notorious crime family shaken when he crosses paths with Anna (Watts), a midwife who has accidentally uncovered evidence against them. Their unusual relationship sets off an unstoppable chain of murder, mystery and deception in the explosive film critics are calling “provocative and engrossing” (Claudia Puig, USA Today).
