THE EXPATRIATE (2013)

Synopsis: Recently widowed Ben Logan (Aaron Eckhart) has quit his job as a top CIA agent and moved to Cologne to raise his teenage daughter, from whom he has been estranged for the past 14 years. While trying to rebuild his relationship with his daughter, he takes a job for a security systems arm of a multi-national corporation, where he is paid to expose weaknesses in their security technology so they can make a better product. Or so he thinks.

When Ben’s colleague points out something strange about a patent number on a security device she is testing, he relays her concern to his supervisor. The next day when Ben arrives at the office it is completely empty. All people and traces of the business are gone. Ben soon learns that the parent corporation never had a security solutions arm, let alone an office in Cologne. As Ben pieces together what has happened, he realizes that he is a marked man running on borrowed time. He and his daughter must learn to trust each other and work together if they are to survive on the run, while also trying to unearth and foil the conspiracy that threatens their lives.
