While on a job, a man sees his partner in crime, Nigel, get shot. Based on a pact they had made, he adopts Nigel's daughter. Ten years later, he is still grieving Nigel's death. The man's butler, Jeeves, accompanies the girl out of the house.
The man finds a letter from Jeeves explaining that his daughter has been "re-housed" and that the "new parents" offer her return in exchange for four million dollars. At night, the man receives a phone call telling him to bring the money to the abandoned warehouse on the main street in Dixon. The man loads up on guns and takes a bike to Dixon. He enters the warehouse and shoots his way through henchmen. He enters a room and finds the girl dead. He sees Nigel, who it turns out did not die. Nigel shoots the man.
