A year after the events in Paris in Taken, family members of the men whom Bryan Mills (Neeson) killed while searching for his daughter, Kim (Grace), meet up in Tropojë, Albania, for their funeral. During the ceremony, Murad Hoxha (Šerbedžija), the employer of the men and father of Marko Hoxha, a victim whom Bryan killed via electrocution, states that they will find Bryan to avenge the deaths of their loved ones. On a trip to Istanbul, Bryan gets a surprise visit from Kim and his ex-wife, Lenore (Janssen). As Bryan and Lenore head out on a date, they are pursued by Murad's men, and, despite Bryan's efforts, Lenore is captured, forcing Bryan to surrender. Before he does so, he calls Kim to explain the situation and warns her that the Albanians will come for her. With advice from Bryan, she is able to evade capture from the men sent after her.
