The Foreigner

Synopsis: The story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love - his teenage daughter - is taken from him in a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism. In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat- and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers.

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

You like it?

All right.

I need to go.

My dad's here.

I'll see you tonight.

Yeah.

(CAR ENGINE STARTS)

This is the dress.

Do you like it?

We've got to hurry.

Everyone's going.

There's only two left

in my size.

Come on, Dad,

let's go.

(CHILDREN PLAYING)

When do I meet him?

His name's Chappy.

On the football team and very... Chubby?

"Chappy."

You'll meet when he

picks me up for the dance.

Not before?

Dad, you really need

to go faster.

Will he drive you

to the dance?

He's rented a limo.

So, he won't drive you?

Limos come

with drivers.

So, stop worrying.

It's a nice dress.

You'll be very pretty.

I want you to like it.

I'm getting out.

No, no, no.

Wait until I park.

Everyone's already inside.

Fan, careful crossing

the street!

(CAR ENGINE STARTS)

You stupid...

(PHONE RINGS)

Metro desk, Ian Wood.

MAN:
Listen carefully.

An action wing of the Authentic

IRA has just exploded a bomb

at the OBT Bank

in Knightsbridge.

The code word is "Phoenix".

Britain's banks are now

targets for the Authentic IRA.

The bombings will continue

as long as

Britain's financial

criminal institutions

persist in their support of the

illegal occupation of Northern Ireland.

A bomb just went off,

an OBT Bank

in Knightsbridge.

A group called the "Authentic

IRA" just phoned it in.

They're claiming credit.

Who's the Authentic IRA?

No idea.

Never heard of them.

Christ. There goes the Peace

Accord right back in the shit.

Listen up. A bank has just

been bombed in Knightsbridge.

A group calling itself the

"Authentic IRA" just phoned it in.

I want to know who they are,

who's behind them.

Call the Met, Sinn

Fin, monitor the blogs.

Is it the IRA, or is it

something else? ISIS? Al-Qaeda?

What are you waiting for?

Get over there.

(HELICOPTER BLADES WHIRRING)

REPORTER:
...have asked a

number of police officials

for current estimates on

the dead and injured.

(CONTINUES INDISTINCTLY)

(CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKING)

(WOMAN SOBBING)

FEMALE ANCHOR:
This is a major

incident that they're treating

as a possible

terrorist attack.

The bomb went off at...

(KNOCKING ON DOOR)

...exactly 4:
15 GM in Knightsbridge.

One theory on the cause

of the blast,

was that it may have been a

gasoline explosion underground.

How many?

How many I get?

Twelve dead so far,

three times as many injured.

The explosion was centered

at the OBT Bank Branch

in Knightsbridge.

There was no warning, and police

were taken completely by surprise.

F*ck warnings.

That'll teach 'em.

Any problems?

No.

We should be moving.

That's normal procedure.

Every cop, hotel,

and landlady in London

is now looking

for the Irishman.

This place is safe,

so long as we stay put.

(CELL PHONE VIBRATING)

Would I go to jail if

I murdered your phone?

Destruction of

government property?

Absolutely.

(CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

Too bad. What's the time?

Almost 10:
00.

Ten more minutes.

I'll miss my flight.

Let's stay here,

door locked, blinds down...

Room service for a week.

Sound good?

And your work,

Deputy Minister?

An acute case of

food poisoning.

(MAGGIE CHUCKLES)

You need to work

on your excuses, darling.

(CELL PHONE VIBRATES)

Jesus Christ.

There's been an IRA

bombing in London.

Scores dead and injured.

(CELL PHONE VIBRATING)

Yes?

Jesus, Liam. Half the

world's trying to find you.

Do you even know

what's happened?

Yes, yes, yes, I heard.

I've been trying you for

hours. Where've you been?
