As an assassin, Jack is constantly on the move and always alone.
After a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, Jack retreats to the Italian countryside.
He relishes being away from death for a spell as he holes up in a small medieval town.
While there, Jack takes an assignment to construct a weapon for a mysterious contact, Mathilde.
Savouring the peaceful quietude he finds in the mountains of Abruzzo, Jack accepts the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto and pursues a torrid liaison with a beautiful woman, Clara.
Jack and Clara’s time together evolves into a romance, one seemingly free of danger. But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.
