Ex-cop Brian O'Conner has left Los Angeles due to his illegal actions and soars the streets of Miami making money here and there by street racing. Watched by Customs Agent Monica Fuentes, Brian is caught by the police and is given a deal by Agents Markham and Bilkins. They want Brian to go undercover and try to bring down drug lord Carter Verone. In exchange, his criminal record will be erased. Brian agrees but only if he is given permission to choose his partner. He heads home to California where he recruits his old friend Roman Pearce to help him. Roman agrees, but only for the same deal Brian was offered. With Monica's help, Brian and Roman work together to take down Verone.
