In "3 Days to Kill," Ethan Runner (Kevin Costner) is a highly skilled Secret Service agent who for most of his life chose his secret career over his now-estranged wife (Connie Neilsen) and daughter, Zoey (Hailee Steinfeld). He wants to reconnect with his family and retires from the agency to do just that. With Ethan retired, his wife asks him to look after Zoey while she travels to London for business, a role he happily accepts.

Soon Ethan discovers that he is terminally ill and given just three days to live. He does have one way out though. Agent Vivi (Amber Heard) has an experimental antidote but will only fork it over if Ethan helps them capture The Wolf, a terrorist Ethan hunted for a long time during his career. With few options, Ethan agrees to the job but has to complete it while also looking after Zoey and without arising her suspicions.
