The remaining members of the Syndicate, known as The Apostles, are trying to get three plutonium cores to starve a third of the world’s population. Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) fails to get the plutonium first as he instead chooses to save the life of Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames). CIA Director Erica Sloan (Angela Bassett) orders her agent August Walker (Henry Cavill) to shadow Ethan as they attempt to find the leader of the Apostles, John Lark.
Ethan and Walker supposedly kill Lark before he is set to meet with an arms dealer known as the White Widow (Vanessa Kirby). Ethan impersonates Lark and is told by White Widow that he must bring her Solomon Lane in exchange for the plutonium cores, with her giving him one as a down payment. Ethan, Luther, Walker, and Benji Dunn get Lane, but Ilsa Faust wants to kill Lane under orders by MI6.
Walker turns out to be the real Lark, having been working with Lane to frame Ethan. After he is discovered, Walker kills IMF Secretary Alan Hunley and reveals to Ethan that they will kill his ex-wife Julia Meade if he doesn’t turn himself in and let their plan carry through.
Ethan and his team locate Lane and Walker in Kashmir where they go to stop the bombs from going off. Benji and Ilsa fight Lane and defeat him while Ethan goes after Walker. He sends Walker off a cliff to his death just as he manages to get the detonator and stop the bombs from going off at the last second.
Ethan recovers from his injuries at the campsite after seeing Julia one last time, while the CIA hands Lane over to MI6.
