The movie  is based on the Andy McNab novel of the same name.  According to IMDB some well trained criminals have hijacked the Eurostar deep beneath the English Channel. They have one too many hostages, as SAS operator Tom Buckingham (Sam Heughan) is hidden somewhere on the train and he will unleash all he has in order to save his love and the rest of the passengers from these criminals.
