Shelby Cervoisier used to lead a life of leisurenow she's running for her life. After being accused of killing an American immigration agent, Shelby undertakes a mission on behalf of a secretive American espionage agency, in exchange for legal amnesty and political asylum. When the mission gets bungled, the agency wants her dead and hires two assassins, Hank and Vlad, to do the job. Shelby and her younger sister, Carmen, hurriedly flee to the Midwest, only to be captured by Hank. Romance blossoms between the hunter and his prey and the bounty reward takes a back seat; instead of turning them in, Hank stows the sisters away at a farm in a remote corner of Colorado. Meanwhile, psychopathic Vlad hasn't given up the chase and tensions mount as they wait for his arrival at the farm sanctuary.
