* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: Twice, first with the burglars' plan to [[spoiler: swap clothes with Stephan to lure Meg out of the safe room]] and second with Meg's plan to [[spoiler:lure the burglars' out and to a specific place of her choosing so they'll be trapped between Stephan armed with the gun and her armed with the sledgehammer]]. Both go off more or less as planned, though RealityEnsues hard on the second one, mainly because [[spoiler:Stephan's not able to aim well due to his injuries, and a sledgehammer is a really difficult weapon for a small-framed woman to wield effectively]].

Recently-divorced Meg Altman (Foster) and her 12-year-old daughter Sarah (Stewart) move into a [[BigFancyHouse four-story Manhattan brownstone]] which has a fortified "panic room" in case of home invasion. Late at night, three burglars, Burnham (Creator/ForestWhitaker), Junior (Creator/JaredLeto), and Raoul (Music/DwightYoakam), break in looking for money hidden in the house by the previous owner. The two women lock themselves up in the room, but are unable to call for help. Worse yet, the money was stored in the panic room and the burglars have no issue going through the new owners to get it (also, originally unbeknownst to them, it was ''far'' more than they had been told it was, and in the form of bearer bonds).
