George Clooney stars in this psychological thriller. At film's beginning, Jack (Clooney) is an assassin enjoying a holiday with his lover Ingrid in a remote cabin in Sweden. An attempt on his life results in three people being killed, and he flees, ending up hiding out in a picturesque mountain town in Italy. There he befriends an elderly priest and patronizes a prostitute named Clara. As his relationship with Clara deepens, Jack works on making a custom sniper's rifle for a woman named Mathilde. Jack slowly comes around to the idea that he wants to change his life, but his situation is perilous.
