For decades conspiracy theorists have believed that the CIA and other covert agencies have recruited terminally ill people with nothing to lose to do their dirty work (i.e. Jack Ruby killing Lee Harvey Oswald, then dying of cancer). Kendra Volkov has been battling lupus for years and she's losing. There's a five year wait for a kidney transplant and she only has months to live. Caring for a mother with Alzheimer's, fending off a lecherous boss, and taking care of her young son, has taken its toll. She's in a dire and desperate situation with no way to care for her family when she's gone. The mysterious Mr. Griffin makes her an offer; kill international criminal Alek Pajari and her son and mother will be taken care of after she's gone. It's an offer she can't refuse.
