They explain the return of Vin Diesel’s character, Xander Cage,as having faked his own death and then living in self-imposed exile in the Dominican Republic (though apparently the CIA has known the entire time since they track him down again). He’s asked to to recover “Pandora’s Box”, a device that can turn every military satellite in the world into a warhead to crash into the ground. Xander recruits a new team of similar daredevils to track down the “Pandora’s Box” but uncovers a conspiracy that goes to highest levels of the world’s governments.
