Synopsis: Jane, a mysterious woman staying in a remote cabin in the mountains, meets and falls for Ella, a local woman caught in an abusive relationship. As the two grow closer, we learn that Jane is a contract killer, hiding out after a job went wrong and a little girl was killed. Jane is waiting to meet up with her mentor and father-figure, but he’s nowhere to be found. As a self-imposed deadline approaches, the sudden appearance of a former colleague, a deadly turn in Ella’s relationship and a sign from Thomas, all force Jane to choose between the man who raised her and the woman that loves her.
