But it has also made him a wanted man on the worldwide stage. Hence, cost him everything he has ever loved. A second shot at redemption is now being offered to Cobb. If he can pull off the seemingly impossible, conception, one final assignment could give him his life back.
Cobb and his group of experts have to carry off the opposite theft rather than the ideal one. Instead of stealing ideas, it is their job to germinate new ones.
