A hot-shot Russian director brings his brand of action to Hollywood in this Boys Own version of My Fair Lady / The Princess Diaries / etc. Our hero is a meek office worker, henpecked by his boss and trodden on by his girlfriend. One day, he is picked up by a svelte young woman, who informs him that his father belonged to their Fraternity of Assassins... and that he had the killing skills in his genes. He is sent through a brutal training regime before being unleashed on the world to take out evil people. As things progress, he starts to realise that maybe he is just part of a much bigger game...
