They said 'Take her out'. He got the wrong idea.

Victor Maynard is a middle-aged, solitary assassin who lives to please his formidable mother, despite his own peerless reputation for lethal efficiency. His professional routine is interrupted when he finds himself drawn to one of his intended victims. After sparing her life, he unexpectedly acquires a young apprentice. Believing Victor to be a private detective, his two new companions tag along, while he attempts to thwart the murderous attentions of his unhappy client.

Der äußerlich unauffällige, stets gepflegte und konzentrierte Junggeselle Victor Maynard gilt als unerreichter Meister in der Zunft der Auftragsmörder. Nun jedoch könnte er zum ersten Mal in seiner langen Karriere versagen, bringt er es doch nicht übers Herz, eine zur Vernichtung erkorene junge Kunstfälscherin um die Ecke zu bringen. Ja, anstatt sie zu töten, gewährt er ihr sogar Asyl und beschützt sie vor den zweitbesten Killern, die ihnen sein erboster Auftraggeber hinterher hetzt. Wie gut, dass ihn wenigstens ein frisch zugelaufener jugendlicher Lehrling unterstützt.
