in 1973 on the night of July 10, around three o'clock in the morning, 16-year-old John Paul Getty III was kidnapped near the Farnezi Palace in Rome. The members of the Calabrian Ndrangheta who organized the kidnapping knew exactly what they were targeting. Young John's grandfather, J. Paul Getty was the richest man in the world at the time, founder and owner of Getty Oil. His fortune was estimated at 1.2 billion. US dollars (adjusted for inflation, it would now be almost nine billion). The kidnappers demanded 17 million. dollar ransom, but the grandfather refused to pay.
Cinema great Ridley Scott tells the breathtaking story of John's mother Gail (actress Michelle Williams), who is desperately looking for a way out. Geilė, divorced from the son of a rich oilman, cannot even dream of such money. And the stingy and flint-hard ex-father-in-law doesn't even want to hear about the ransom. The main motive behind his decision is that paying the criminals would open up a new "earning" opportunity for them and then all 14 of his grandchildren would be in danger. Fletcher Chase (actor Mark Wahlberg), former CIA operative Fletcher Chase (actor Mark Wahlberg) rushes to help Gail. Along with John's desperate mother, Fletcher tries to find a way out of a desperate situation. When the criminals send a kidnapped boy's severed ear in the mail, they are horrified to realize that time is running out for a solution.
Although the thriller with a tense plot revolves around the kidnapping of John, the main figure of the film becomes a person on whom the fate of not only the kidnapped grandson, but also everyone around him depends - J. Paul Getty, played by legendary actor Christopher Plummer.
