A professional assassin who does not wish to continue as such receives an order from his employer (a mysterious "Company") to kill one last target in Buenos Aires. While completing this task, he falls in love with the lover of his future victim, to whom he proposes fleeing to Nepal together. But suddenly everything gets complicated.



The film was based on the classic novel Ultimas dias de la victima, by Argentine screenwriter, philosopher and novelist Jose Pablo Feinmann. The book was adapted as a movie for the first time in the Argentinian film Últimos días de la víctima (1982).

The story was totally rewritten by a U.S. screenwriter, Yolanda Finch (Yolande Turner), together with Feinmann, for a North American audience.[1]
