Former FBI agent and amputee Will Sawyer lives in the tallest and "safest" skyscraper in Hong Kong with his family. The skyscraper itself, known as "The Pearl" houses several floors that function as their own society and despite the risks highlighted by Sawyer, who is the building's head of security, his bosses insist that it is impenetrable. True to Sawyer's belief, the building comes under attack by terrorists, forcing Sawyer to take action. Matters are complicated further when he finds himself framed for the attack, and his family trapped above the resulting fire line.
