Driver se po desetih letih, ki jih je preživel v zaporu, želi maščevati vsem, ki so bili pred desetletjem v ponesrečenem bančnem ropu odgovorni za smrt njegovega brata. Toda maščevanje bo vse prej kot lahko, saj je Driverju za petami tako plačani morilec, ki mora čim prej opraviti svoje delo, kot tudi policijski veteran, ki ima pred seboj le še dva tedna poklicne dolžnosti, potem pa se bo lahko za vedno upokojil. Bo Driver kljub temu uspel uresničiti svoje maščevalne načrte?
A lone man, recently released from prison, seeks out the people from his past who he believes betrayed him. While he forces each to atone for their sins, he must also face what meting out vengeance will do to his immortal soul. Meanwhile, he's not the only one looking to settle old scores. Hired by the man responsible for the events which lead him to prison, an eccentric contract killer follows his every move. Scenes of them crossing paths, sometimes violently, are interspersed with the assassin's self-realizations of how to deal with struggles within his own life. As if old enemies & hired guns aren't enough, a young female detective begrudgingly works alongside a veteran investigator looking to simply survive his last two weeks on the force before retirement, as they seek out the brazen ex-con who has been blazing a path of gasoline-powered destruction in his vintage Chevelle.
