Retired actor/international spy Jean-Claude Van Damme comes out of retirement to romantically pursue his former hairdresser/right-hand woman Vanessa. Despite his lingering self-doubt, JCVD quickly rediscovers his comfort zone both on set and in the field... for a day, at least. Then he messes everything up.
After Vanessa expresses her displeasure with his botched assignment, JCVD redoubles his efforts to complete the job, infiltrating a local street race... where he messes everything up. Again. Lucky for him, Vanessa has discovered that drugs are just the tip of the iceberg, and she's going to need all the help she can get... even if it's JCVD's.
Filip never asked for much. Just a good group of work friends - which he had - until his life was for some reason turned upside down by legendary actor Jean-Claude Van Damme. Luckily, a group of mercenaries is just around the corner, about to offer Filip the chance to exact his revenge.
JCVD explores whether time is a flat circle or more of a tetrahedron. Filip becomes trapped in a nightmare of his own making. Vanessa confronts the pain of her past, and Luis stares into the bleak wasteland of his soul.
Having destroyed what was left of his career and alienated everyone he cares about, JCVD retreats to his hometown to lick his wounds. But you can never really go home again - and some wounds are hard to reach with your tongue.
