It was a sense of divine justice that an assassin like me should be forced to live a different life.

Since childhood, we’ve been acquainted with good guys behind the mask and their reasons which extend beyond that facial cover. The Lone Ranger, Zorro, Green Hornet, Green Lantern, Batman and Robin, Spiderman, and Superman. Yet there is one name that escapes this list of fellow compatriots and that is William Reynolds (Andrew Cheney)—a British import, with an American attitude.

Imagine being a mercenary whose life was spared once, to take on the new identity of a vicar. Then saved a second time because with his choice of retirement from the life of an assassin, his former boss, Charles Kemp (John Rhys-Davies), failed in his first attempt to kill poor William. His life was spared yet a third time; when that same employer again sought his life. But somehow, William managed to escape.

On his last mission, William discovered evidence that could expose that same disgruntled employer. Charlotte Holloway (Kara Killmer) who pulled him from the water and nursed him back to health, with whom he fell in love; just happened to be the niece of that same employer. “Can a man who has made his life a web of lies earn trust again?”

William sails for America to find the truth, to gain that trust, and befriends Benjamin Franklin (Alan Madlane) along the way.

“Redemption not revenge. There is only one name with the power that can make you new.” What do you think William’s choice will be? You will have to watch the movie to find out.
