Plot summary

What is Destroyer movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Destroyer" movie plot summary.

LAPD detective Erin Bell (Nicole Kidman) arrives on the scene of a John Doe murder and informs the responding officers that she knows the identity of the murderer.
At the police station, Erin receives a $100 bill stained from a dye pack in an unmarked envelope. Using a contact at the FBI, she confirms that the bill is from a bank robbery committed by a California gang sixteen years prior that she and her former partner, FBI agent Chris (Sebastian Stan), were embedded in as undercover officers. She tells her superiors that she believes the bill to be proof that the gang's leader, Silas (Toby Kebbell), is once again active.
Erin works her way through the remaining members of the gang in order to find Silas. She begins with Toby (James Jordan), who was in prison but is now gravely ill and living with his mother on compassionate release. She gives him a handjob in exchange for the location of Arturo, a member of the gang atoning for his past crimes by offering pro bono legal services to immigrants. Arturo (Zach Villa) provides Erin with the location of Dennis DiFranco (Bradley Whitford), a lawyer who launders the multi-million dollar haul from the original robbery and from whom Erin deduces that Silas is active again because the money from that heist is almost gone. After Erin thrashes him, DiFranco gives her the location of the next money drop, which is performed by Silas' girlfriend Petra (Tatiana Maslany), who has developed a severe drug addiction. Erin tracks Petra, eventually intervening in a bank robbery committed by Silas' new gang. She and Petra brutally injure each other in a fight, ending with Erin abducting Petra.
