After Wick loses his wife Helen to an unspecified illness, he receives a puppy named Daisy, per Helen’s instructions, to help him cope with her death. He gradually connects with the puppy, and they spend their day driving around in his vintage Mustang.
At a gas station, he encounters a trio of Russian gang members whose leader, Iosef, insists on buying his car, but John refuses to sell it. The three mobsters follow John to his home and break in later that night; after beating John unconscious, they steal his car and kill Daisy.
Iosef takes the Mustang to a chop shop run by Aurelio to have the VIN changed, but Aurelio recognizes the car, and after learning Iosef stole it from John and killed his dog, he assaults Iosef and throws him out of his shop.
John visits Aurelio, who tells him Iosef is the son of Viggo Tarasov (Michael Nyqvist), the head of the Russian crime syndicate in New York City, and during a phone call, Aurelio informs Viggo of Iosef’s actions.
