Summary
JCVD is an out of luck actor. He's out of money, his agent can't find him a decent production, and a judge is inclined to give his ex-wife custody of his daughter. He returns to his childhood home of Brussels. When he goes into a post office to receive a wire transfer, he finds himself in the middle of a hostage situation. Due to an unfortunate mistake, the police believe JCVD is responsible for the crime. As the events are played from different perspectives, JCVD finds himself protecting the hostages, as well as serving as their negotiator. JCVD is forced to accept responsibility for crimes he didn't commit, as well as the life mistakes that he did make.
