When a job in Sweden ends messily, Jack flees to the Italian countryside and vows that his next assignment will be his last. But this simple decision becomes complicated when his new client, Mathilde (Thekla Reuten), appears to have sinister ulterior motives. Meanwhile, Jack pursues an ambiguous relationship with local prostitute Clara (Violante Placido) and is befriended by elderly priest Father Benedetto (Paolo Bonacelli), who encourages him to put his past behind him and seek absolution. But which of these new acquaintances, if any, can Jack truly trust?
