Taking place over a span of three days, "Safe House" stars Denzel Washington as Tobin Frost, a rogue CIA agent who has been off the grid for almost 10 years. In Cape Town, South Africa he walks into the American consulate and turns himself in. He's transported to a safe house run by young CIA agent Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds), desperate to get a new, more exciting post. Frost is considered one of the most dangerous men in the world and is now Weston's "house guest."
