In the exclusive scene, Lucas Hood (Antony Starr) cases a robbery location with a pair of thugs while Carrie (Ivana Milicevic) debates giving in to Mr. Rabbit (Ben Cross).

Banshee follows the interesting chain of events that occur when a recently paroled master thief assumes the identity of Lucas Hood, sheriff-in-waiting of Banshee, PA -- a small Amish town where his former partner and lover Carrie relocated and remarried years ago.

Itching for the thrill of thievery and yearning for Carrie, Lucas inadvertently gets tangled up in the rampant corruption of shunned Amish gangster Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen) while imposing his own type of justice and keeping a vigilant eye out for Mr. Rabbit, a New York mob boss out for revenge.
