Her seven-year-old son is in a coma in another hospital - and the police suspect her of attempting to murder him. With no memory of what happened but convinced of her innocence, Gaelle escapes and begins a determined hunt for the truth.
Michael is a contract killer working for Scorpio, a ruthless organisation that spares no-one, where any agent who violates the rules signs their own death warrant. When Michael decides to reject an assignment, he knows he must run for his life.
One makes a living by killing, the other would kill to survive. And soon their paths will cross...
