Anna is a contract killer. She doesn’t feel any guilt, but it’s a lonely Job. Her boss, Lewin is the only one she can trust, and he’s a cold professional. While setting up a hit, she meets Lino, whose kind and easygoing nature fascinates her. They spend a night together, but no more. She cannot allow herself the luxury of a relationship. Her next “mark“ turns out to be a contract killer who wants to retire. She is caught off guard, is wounded and only barely manages to escape. Not sure if she can still trust Lewin, she goes to Lino’s. He wants her to confide in him, but she can’t. Gradually though, as she recovers, she opens up to him. Lewin tracks Anna down and insists that she attend to her unfinished business, which she does. When she then says she wants to retire, Lewin agrees - on one condition. She must take out Lino.
