Contraband


1h 49m 2012

Brief Synopsis

Legendary smuggler Chris Farraday had abandoned his life of crime to settle into a life of comfortable domesticity with his wife and their two young sons. But after his brother-in-law, Andy, botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs, Chris is forced back into doing what he does better than anyone-running contraband to settle Andy's debt. With the help of his best friend, Sebastian Abney, Chris quickly assembles a crew that includes their childhood friend Danny Raymer to head to Panama and return with millions in counterfeit bills. They must pull this off under the suspicious eyes of the ship's captain, whose long history with Chris' father makes him suspect the younger Farraday of even shadier dealings.
