Lance Sterling[Will Smith], an insolent secret agent of H.T.U.V. (Honor, Trust, Unity, and Valor), is sent to recover an attack drone from Japanese arms dealer ‘Katsu Kimura’ in Japan. Immediately the terrorist Killian arrives, then Sterling breaks against the orders of Joy Jenkins, defeats Kimura and his gang, and managed to escape with the briefcase containing the drone. Sterling returned to H.T.U.V headquarters to approach Walter Beckett, for equipping nonlethal weapons into his suit. Walter tried to persuade Sterling that there is a more peaceful way to save the world, but Sterling fires him before he can explain his latest invention ‘biodynamic concealment’.

Sterling discovered that the briefcase was empty and is approached by Marcy Kappel. Who reveals footage of Sterling (actually Killian in a holographic disguise) leaving with the drone, labeling him as a traitor. Sterling escapes from the H.T.U.V. and decided to track down Walter to help him vanish. Killian breaks into the H.T.U.V. weapons facility.

While Sterling was searching Walter’s home for his invention, he unknowingly ingests the concoction and transforms into a pigeon. Before Walter could even start making an antidote to change him back, Marcy and other H.T.U.V. agents chased them through the city, but they escaped in Sterling’s spy car. They both track down Kimura to a resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. They learned of Killian’s whereabouts in Venice Italy, before Marcy and the H.T.U.V. can capture them again. On their way to Venice, Walter tried to make the antidote but failed.


In Venice, Walter is confronted by the H.T.U.V. Who are unaware of Sterling’s condition.  Marcy tried to convince Walter to help turn Sterling in, but Walter refuses. Suddenly, a drone distracts the H.T.U.V. which allowed Walter and Sterling to escape. They both discovered the drone carrying the H.T.U.V. agent database, and Walter manages to get it.
