Skiptrace is the story of Bennie Chan (Jackie Chan), a Hong Kong detective who has been in the footsteps of Mafia Victor Wong for more than a decade. When Bennie’s niece, Samantha (Bingbing Fan), gets into trouble with the Wong-led crime syndicate, Bennie decides to find Samantha in this situation. This is none other than Connor Watts (Johnny Knoville).
But Bennie quickly discovers that if he brings Connor back to Hong Kong he will resolve more than his niece’s problems; Connor knows things about Victor Wong who, once exposed, would always throw the corrupt businessman behind bars.
Starting in a timed race to teach Connor to Hong Kong, the two unlikely partners have an exciting, dangerous world that surrounds the globe, from the Mongolian mountains to the Gobi desert
