When a mysterious cyberterrorist (Charlize Theron) seduces retired Dom (Vin Diesel) back into the world of crime he can't seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, the elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world's stage... and to bring home the man who made them a family. Helen Mirren is introduced as Magdalene Shaw in an uncredited performance.
