Retired marksman James Dial is haunted by his failure to assassinate one of the world's most notorious terrorists. He is approached by his old employers to finish the job in London, where the terrorist leader has been captured and is under heavy protection. The routine mission for the sniper turns into a nightmare as Dial is forced into hiding and relentlessly pursued by the British police and their lead investigator, Windsor. But when Dial is framed for Windsor's murder, he begins to realize that he has been seriously double-crossed. His only hope is a 12-year-old girl, whom Dial reluctantly befriends, as he desperately searches to find the killer and the truth behind his betrayal.

Unlikely plot that a lone and wounded CIA contract killer had succeeded to escape the dragnet of an elite black-op team and the London Metro Police task force. Nonetheless, fast paced thriller worth one viewing.

girl: Where have you been?
James: A costume party.
Girl: Don't lie to a liar.

girl:I told my gramms I was
gonna read Jane Eyre
to this weird lady down the row.
James: What if she finds out you're not?
girl: She won't. I lie all the time.
I got her incredibly confused
once, poor old thing.

James: I didn't shoot the cop.
girl: I believe you.
You can't lie to a liar
so I'd know if you were.
James: Yeah, I bet you would.
