FBI Agent Sean Archer is obsessed by his quest to hunt down the terrorist Caster Troy. Six years ago Caster, in attempt to kill Archer, killed Archer's son instead.

A tip-off reaches the FBI that Caster and his brother Pollux are travelling on a private jet. Archer and fellow FBI agents corner the aeroplane in a hangar. After a ferocious gunfight, the terrorists are captured. Caster has been hit, and is in a coma, so he's transferred to hospital. Pollux is put in a high security jail. Further investigations reveal that the terrorists have activated a biological weapon in an unknown location in LA.

Archer conceives the bold plan of using the latest in face-transplant surgical techniques to replace his face with Caster's. This way he'll be able to fool Pollux into revealing the location of the bomb.
