NATO operative Jacques Kristoff (Jean-Claude van Damme) is summoned into action—on his birthday, no less—to track down Galina Konstantin (Laura Harring), who has stolen an extremely valuable and dangerous top-secret container from the Slovakian Government.

Finding Galina doesn't take long, and Jacques must wrap up the mission by returning Galina and the contraband to his superiors by train.

Jacques's physician wife Madeline (Susan Gibney) isn't happy about this turn of events, no doubt having invested a small fortune in a Berlitz correspondence course and a year of acting lessons for Jacques's birthday but she sees him off at the train station with the couple's teenage daughter Bailey (Jessica Bowman) and son Ethan (Kristopher Van Varenberg).

It seems Galina's ill-gotten gain is three vials of SP-43, an ultra-virulent strain of smallpox, cultured in fluorescent green serum. It also seems that a group of terrorists, led by Mason Cole (Tomas Arana), intend to hijack the train and steal the virus for their own ends but unknown to them, standing in their way is Jacques. Not long after the train has crossed over the border with Austria, it is hijacked at a station by Mason and his crew. Two of them stab the driver and commandeer the controls while the rest seize the passengers and establish control.
