After John Wick loses his wife Helen to a terminal illness, he receives a beagle puppy named Daisy from her to help him cope with his grief. Despite John's almost stoic demeanor, he bonds with the puppy and they spend their day driving around in his vintage 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429. At a gas station, he encounters a trio of Russian gangsters whose leader Iosef insists on buying his car, but John repeatedly states that it is not for sale. Frustrated, the mobsters learn where John's home is, knock him unconscious, steal his car, and kill Daisy.

Iosef takes the Mustang to a chop shop to have the VIN changed. Aurelio, the shop's owner, recognizes the car and, upon learning that Iosef stole it from John, punches Iosef before throwing him out of his shop. John visits Aurelio, who identifies Iosef as the son of Viggo Tarasov, the head of the Russian crime syndicate in New York City. Viggo, notified by Aurelio of Iosef's activities, beats and berates Iosef before explaining to him who John Wick is: A famed assassin formerly in Viggo's employ, nicknamed 'Baba Yaga' (A deformed looking old witch, incorrectly translated in the film as Russian for 'Boogeyman'). Previously, when John wanted to retire and marry Helen, Viggo gave him an 'impossible task', implied to involve multiple assassinations in a short period of time. John succeeded, and his efforts were key in establishing the Tarasov syndicate.

Viggo tries to talk John out of seeking retribution, but John refuses. Viggo then…
