Cool precision and venomous beauty entwine in the striking figure of Laure Ash (Romijn-Stamos), a woman who can only be expected to do the unexpected. A master of manipulation and guile, Laure plays a crucial role in a sultry jewel theft and then abruptly leaves her life of crime – and her bloodthirsty cohorts – behind her.

Reinvented in the guise of a respectable married woman, Laure soon captures the attention of Nicolas (Banderas), a soulful ex-paparazzo mesmerized by the elusive and enthralling adventuress. Attracted to the enigmatic Laure but serving an agenda of his own, Nicolas shatters her carefully crafted world with one shutter click of his camera.

Suddenly exposed to the world and vulnerable to her enemies, Laure is determined to use her considerable assets – and Nicolas’ voyeuristic instincts – to transform her identity and once again escape her past. But as she ensnares Nicolas in her calculated seduction, Laure finds her quest for revenge complicated by their mutual attraction.

Now that Nicolas has revealed Laure to the public, can he uncover who she really is before the inescapable threads of fate thrust them on a collision course between life, death, love and regret?
