Michael’s everyday commute home on the train takes an unexpected twist when a mysterious woman sets him a mind-boggling challenge which threatens the lives of those on board.
For Insurance Salesman Michael (Liam Neeson), the daily train commute home from work has been the same for the last 10 years. A mysterious woman (Vera Farmiga) strikes up a conversation with Michael, it soon becomes clear that today is going to be different as she sets him a challenge.
‘’Someone on this train does not belong. You don’t know what they look like, all you have to do is find them.’’
Offering him a cash reward, she then goes on to explain that he must not leave the train until he has found them, and he is under no circumstances allowed to share details of the offer. What follows is a desperate attempt to narrow down the list of passengers until the culprit is caught, but the struggle intensifies as time begins to run out.
