Posing as Jean-Claude, Bryan enters the house under the pretense of re-negotiating the police protection rate. Bryan infiltrates a covert sex slave auction underway beneath Saint-Clair's manor, where Kim is the subject of the last sale. While she makes a call to Bryan, Kim sees men enter the apartment and abduct Amanda. Kim and Amanda go to Amanda's cousins' apartment, only for Kim to find that they are in Spain. Bryan hears a person breathing heavily and, realising one of the abductors has picked up the phone, tells him that he will not go after the kidnappers if they release his daughter, but warns them that failure will result in their deaths. Plot[ edit ] Retired CIA field agent Bryan Mills attempts to build a closer relationship with his year-old daughter Kim, who lives with her mother Lenore and her wealthy stepfather Stuart. The next morning, the woman tells Bryan of a safe house where she and Kim were kept. After she is dragged out from underneath a bed, Kim yells a description of her abductor. He finds Peter at the airport and tries to capture him. As he's wary about Kim's safety since she wants to go on without him, he initially refuses, but eventually agrees. A quick search reveals several heavily drugged girls, including a dead Amanda. Bryan ties Marko into a chair and interrogates him using parrilla. After a gunfight and high-speed chase with the brothel's operators, Bryan takes the woman to a hotel where he treats her with improvised detoxification. While making his way out, Bryan is knocked out and chained to a pipe, but manages to escape and eliminate Saint-Clair's henchmen. When he identifies Marko Hoxha by making him repeat the same phrase as on the phone, the meeting erupts into a fight that results in the death of all gangsters except Marko. Marko reveals that virgins like Kim are sold quickly due to their prized value, and identifies the buyer as Patrice Saint-Clair.
