Earl se considère comme un raté. Sur le point de se faire tout saisir parce qu’il est complètement fauché, il décide de prendre un nouveau travail : chauffeur. Il est loin de se douter qu’il vient en fait d’être engagé comme passeur pour un cartel de drogue. Ébranlé lorsqu’il le découvre, il décide tout de même de continuer, transportant des quantités de plus en plus grosses. Ses supérieurs décident de lui imposer un surveillant, bien qu’Earl soit parfait pour faire ce travail. Qui pourrait soupçonner cet homme de 80 ans de transporter des kilos de cocaïnes? Il attire néanmoins l’attention d’un jeune agent du DEA, Colin Bates, qui travaille sur cette affaire. Comment Earl pourra-t-il se sortir de cette situation sans perdre le peu qui lui reste? Comment pourra-t-il se pardonner d’être tombé si bas?

Earl Stone (Clint Eastwood) is a man in his 80s who is broke, alone and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for the cartel. He does well—so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler. But he isn’t the only one keeping tabs on Earl; the mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper). And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it’s uncertain if he’ll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel’s enforcers, catch up to him.
