Inspired by a true story, the dramatic life of Stephanie. She appeared to live a somewhat insular and mundane existence, working as a part-time waitress and bringing-up her daughter as a single parent. In reality she was moonlighting as an international contract killer. Stephanie’s intriguing ‘other’ life unfolds in the form of an intimate journal. She recalls the people she has eliminated, how she killed them, even the financial aspect and the emotional consequences. Only when her luck runs out, does her life start to unravel, ultimately sealing her fate.
