Having suffered a devastating loss as a
victim of terrorism, Vicki Denev is
irreversibly damaged. Vague and disturbing
memories drive her desire for revenge,
making her a prime candidate to be
recruited by the government as an assassin
of terrorists. Manipulated by mind control,
her personality is altered, rendering her a
ruthless killer. All goes according to plan,
until a new fantasy personality emerges,
causing a glitch that not only threatens the
mission, but her life.
