Last time around, Brian O' Conner (Paul Walker) was a rookie cop trying to bust the truck-jacking racket. This time he is a former cop turned outlaw. Former because he had let Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) escape in The Fast And The Furious
as he "owed him a ten second car", and outlaw because he has gotten into street racing, big time.
We have the delectable Monica Clemente (Eva Mendes) working under cover to bust the Miami drug lord, Carter Verone (Cole Hauser), who for some reason needs a couple of street racers to get his cash out of town. You see, a supercharged, twin exhaust, force fed car racing down the freeway is going to attract a lot of attention. Two of them will more than double that attention, and that means high-speed car chases! Teaming up with Brian is another outlaw, Roman Pearce (Tyrese).
