The Disappearance of Alice Creed

Two men - one in his twenties, the other nearer forty, both intensely focused on the task at hand - line the inside of a transit van with plastic. Shopping, they buy a drill, a mattress and other supplies. In a small flat they assemble a bed for the mattress and staple foam insulation and board to the walls and windows of a bedroom. Then, their meticulous preparations complete, they kidnap a young woman. They drag her from the street into the back of the van and, with a bag over her head and ball gag in her mouth, take her back to the flat, tying her to the bed in the room they have converted into a prison cell.

Danny and Vic are two ex-convicts planning to gain a huge amount of cash on the ransom for Alice—the daughter of a rich businessman. Danny is the younger and nervier of the two, whereas Vic is hardened and wholly intimidating. After Alice tries to escape, Danny reveals himself and it turns out that Danny and Alice knows each other. Danny explains to Alice that he came up with a plan to kidnap Alice for a £2M ransom and then Danny was to take the money from Vic to share with Alice. Apparently Danny and Vic are lovers that met in prison. Danny kept Alice in the dark about the plan because he wanted the kidnapping to be "authentic". Alice is horrified by the plan but then plays along in order to try and escape later. In the 2nd escape attempt, Alice pockets a disposable cellphone that Vic discovers and he forces Alice to reveal Danny's plan for betrayal.
