The film opens ten years earlier in Rio de Janeiro. Crime boss Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida) and his sociopathic son Dante (Jason Momoa) are awaiting for Dom (Vin Diesel) and his crew to go for them. Their Brazil heist goes off in the streets, with Dante pursuing them alongside his father. They make it to the bridge where Dom stayed behind to ensure Reyes’s demise while Dante was knocked off the bridge and into the water.
Present day in Los Angeles, Dom is showing Little Brian (Leo Abelo Perry) how to drive before taking him back home for a barbecue, as Abuelita Toretto (Rita Moreno) has flown in for the occasion. They return home to the rest of the family – Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Mia (Jordana Brewster), Tej (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges), Roman (Tyrese Gibson), Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel), and Han (Sung Kang). After Abuelita delivers a speech, everyone eats before discussing a planned heist in Rome that was supposedly commissioned by Little Nobody (Scott Eastwood).
At night, Dom tells Letty how Little Brian said he’s not afraid of anything, but he really is afraid of losing his family. Moments later, a beaten and bloodied Cipher (Charlize Theron) shows up at the house. Dom and Letty hide Little Brian before confronting their nemesis. Cipher says that they have a bigger problem coming their way in the form of Dante. He earlier came into her facility after killing two guards and revealing that he has kidnapped the loved ones of Cipher’s henchmen, forcing them to shift loyalties so that he can go after Dom. He leaves after taking her hacking tech and having the remaining henchmen stay to kill her. Cipher fought her way out before going down an elevator shaft with one last goon before coming to the Toretto home.
Dom and Letty contact Little Nobody, who has agents arrive immediately and bring Cipher into custody. They then learn that the Rome heist was a setup orchestrated by Dante, so they fly on out there. While on the streets, Tej, Roman, Ramsey, and Han move their cargo, which turns out to be a massive bomb. Dante then hacks into their trucks to make them veer into traffic before attempting to deliver the bomb to The Vatican. Dom, Letty, and Little Nobody intercept the rest of the gang and get them underground while Dante attempts to blow them all up. The bomb ends up rolling all the way down the hills and streets while Letty tries to chase Dante, only for him to get away and her getting arrested. Dom catches up to the bomb and uses a crane to knock it away from the path of The Vatican, but the ensuing blast radius causes significant damage. The gang are all branded as terrorists and go into hiding while Dante gloats to Dom about tearing his family apart.
At The Agency, new director Aimes (Alan Ritchson) meets with Tess (Brie Larson), daughter of Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell). Aimes has been tracking the Toretto gang’s history of street racing to global heisting, believing that Nobody was too easy on them. While Tess argues in their defense and how they have brought down some pretty serious criminals, Aimes manages to convince the rest of the Agency’s board to go after them. The media then brands the gang international terrorists, resulting in Roman bringing Tej, Ramsey and Han to London.
Mia is taking care of Little Brian when a team of Agency mercs storms in. Mia tries to fight them off while Little Brian hides, only for them to be saved by Jakob (John Cena), having been contacted by Dom. He throws a guy through the floor and bashes other villains all around. Jakob tells Mia to get somewhere safe with Brian and the kids while he takes Little Brian with him safely back to Dom.
Tess finds Dom in Brazil and tells him who Dante is, letting Dom know why he’s going after him. He asks for help in exonerating them and for getting Letty out, as she has been taken to a secret Agency base. Tess meets with Letty and creates a plan to get her moved out of their and into another location by making it look like Letty is attacking her.
Dom goes to a street racing event to meet with Diogo (Luis Da Silva Jr), along with a young woman named Isabel (Daniela Melchior) that Dom knows. Dante shows up and challenges Dom to a street race alongside Diogo and Isabel. During the race, Dante makes Dom choose which of the two will die, as he has set up bombs under their cars. Dom ends up trying to slow Isabel down, making Dante blow up Diogo on the track. Dante then tries to go for Isabel anyway, but Dom knocks the bomb off her car despite making her crash. Dom pulls her out of the wreck while Dante gets away.
The other four end up meeting an old hacking buddy of Ramsey’s named Bowie (Pete Davidson). Ramsey recovers a file and learns that her surveillance system God’s Eye is being used by Dante to target people close to Dom. Dante ends up draining their funds, but Roman had some cash secured. The four are forced to find Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), who thinks Han is there to fight him after his attempt to kill him, but their scuffle is interrupted by more Agency goons showing up. Shaw kills them and learns from Ramsey that his mother Magdalene (Helen Mirren) is among the potential targets, so he heads off to protect his family. The rest of the gang finds a transport to get them to safety.
Letty wakes up in an Agency facility alongside Cipher. She hacks the place to gas the guards and free them. While they try to escape, Letty instigates a fight, leading to them punching and kicking and throwing each other into equipment. After they come back to their senses, Letty attempts to get out without Cipher, only to find out that the facility is in Antarctica.
Jakob bonds with Little Brian and tries to blend in with him to avoid suspicion. They board a plane where a flight attendant (Meadow Walker) who is Jakob’s friend alerts him to the presence of three of Dante’s goons. He knocks them out and has the woman hide their bodies while he and Little Brian board a secret jet toward Brazil.
Isabel wakes up in Dom’s apartment that he shared with Elena (Elsa Pataky), who turns out to be Isabel’s older sister. She tells Dom that she always felt like Elena was the better sibling and wonders if the wrong sister died. Dom assures her that is not the case. With Isabel’s help, they find Elena’s old files on Dante and find a property of his tied to an abandoned police station. Dom visits the station and finds numerous videos and recordings of him and his family over the years. Dante calls and taunts Dom about making him suffer before he dies (as his father taught him), staring outside the window at Isabel before Aimes shows up to arrest Dom.
Dom is transported over the same bridge where the heist went down when the convoy taking him gets bombed by Dante. A faceoff occurs on the bridge when Tess and Aimes try to take Dante and his goons down, but Dante has a sniper on them that shoots them both out of commission before having it point at Isabel, whom Dante had kidnapped. Dom gets Isabel out of the way while Dante takes God’s Eye from Tess, letting Dom know that he can know find his son before getting away. Isabel takes Tess out to safety while Dom races to find Little Brian with help from Aimes.
Dante tracks Jakob and Little Brian’s location, but Jakob comes prepared with a cannon-loaded vehicle that blows the goons up. Little Brian attempts to help by climbing out the back, but this gives Dante an opportunity to swipe the boy from the car. Jakob alerts Dom before he can reach his brother. Dom is dropped out of a jet in his car before two of Dante’s sniper’s choppers shoot his car with harpoons! But then Dom drives off the bridge and makes them collide and EXPLODE! Jakob then gives Dom a chance to flee by sacrificing himself, flipping his bomb-filled car onto the incoming goons and going out in a tragic but epic blaze of glory.
Dom reaches Dante’s car and gets Little Brian to fly out and into Dom’s car. Dante then has two oil tankers attempt to run into Dom and Little Brian over a dam, so he does the only reasonable thing and drives the car down the dam while the tankers blow each other up, forcing Dom to hit the nitro hard so that they can outrun the ensuing fireball. Just when it looks like Dom and Little Brian are safe, a plane carrying the rest of Dom’s gang get hit by a missile ordered by none other than Aimes, who was working with Dante ever since the Rio heist. Dom watches as his friends crash into a mountain. Dante declares that Dom has had his suffering, now he can die. He then rigs the entire dam to blow in a matter of seconds. Dom can only look at his son with fear.
Back in Antarctica, Letty and Cipher emerge from the facility and see a humongous submarine emerge from the ice, piloted by (a somehow alive) Gisele (Gal Gadot). Letty looks on in shock while Cipher appears to have planned for this all along.
Midway through the credits, a team of cops swarm an abandoned Dante facility. One of the men finds a ringing phone and answers it, hearing Dante’s voice marking him as his next target, for he is the man that personally executed his father on that fateful day. The man, of course, is none other than Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson). He simply tells Dante, “I ain’t hard to find…ya sum-BITCH!” before crushing the phone to dust.
Dom finds his family torn apart by Dante Reyes, the vengeful psychopath son of the crime lord robbed and killed by the Toretto gang in Rio ten years earlier. He succeeds in turning Cipher's men against her by taking their loved ones hostage, forcing her to fight them off and warn Dom. They are branded international terrorists after a bogus heist in Rome where the Vatican is almost blown up. Letty is arrested but helped by Tess (daughter of Mr. Nobody), while new director Aimes is after all of them. Roman gets himself, plus Tej, Ramsey and Han to London. Dom gets Jakob to protect Mia and Little Brian before escorting the boy back to Dom safely.
Dom gets help from Isabel (sister of Elena Neves) to track down Dante after he nearly kills her in a race. Dom gets arrested but gets intercepted by Dante on the bridge where the heist went down. Although Tess and Aimes help, Dante incapacitates them and steals God's Eye from Tess to track down Little Brian. Dante kidnaps the boy, and Jakob sacrifices himself to kill Dante's goons and help Dom.
Dom saves his son but Dante is working with Aimes and shoots down the plane carrying the rest of the gang. The dam Dom and Little Brian are in is rigged to explode with them in it. Letty and Cipher end up working together and meet with a totally alive Gisele. Dante then sets his sights on Hobbs, who is ready for him.
