Ritchie Donovan (Stephen Dorff) is a professional thief whose luck takes an extremely downward turn after he is the sole survivor of a failed heist. He is forced to take the rap, and is sent on a mission to Russia to steal a priceless antique cross locked in a safe inside a Moscow skyscraper.
The high-rise robbery begins badly, when Donovan and his reckless Russian accomplices kill a woman, take hostages, and become trapped by authorities on the 13th floor.
Things get worse, however: More people are killed, betrayals are committed, and descendants of Ivan the Terrible arrive on the scene.
Produced by Steve Richards (Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, The Matrix Reloaded).
