The film tells of Lara Croft, a strong and independent daughter of an adventurer who disappeared when Lara was still a teenager. Now Lara is 21 years old. He works as a courier, riding a bicycle on the streets of East London. The money you earn is just enough to rent a home and pay for college. Desiring to live his way, Lara refuses to take control of his father's empire, and also denies the hypothesis that he has died. The father has not been there for seven years, and Lara still has an irresistible desire to understand the reasons for his disappearance. To do this, she goes to the last known place of residence - a mythical island located somewhere off the coast of Japan, where there should be a legendary tomb.
