He is recruited by Deidre an Irish girl and finds out that both the Irish and the Russians are after a mysterious package. Sam teams up with Vincent who has many French underworld connections. Gregor is also part of the team and is an ex German member of the KGB with ties to the Russian mafia. The team of mercenaries has to steal the package from the Russians.
