Late December. A group of
people stay around a new grave at a cemetery. They all are
in a grief. A man - Mike Wolly - makes a speech about a
person who is in this grave. A picture and a name are
shown on the grave as of John McKein.
The ceremony is ended up.
People leave the cemetery one after another. When there is
no one at the cemetery, a single car slowly arrives.
Showing no face, a man gets out of the car and walks to
the grave of John. He puts some flowers over the grave and
looks at the picture. The image of John smiles out of this
picture widely and happy.
The image of John smiles
out of the picture in wooden frame, staying on a coffee
table in a hotel room. The man's hand takes a glass of
vodka and approaches it to the man's face. Then it puts
the empty glass back on the table and grabs a cigarette.
The man puffs out a smoke.
Flashback. John sits
outside a cafe, puffing out the smoke of a cigarette.
There few other young people are around the table - Mike
Wolly, Lucy and Vicky. They all laughs at John's joke.
Parked car turn on its lights. John covers his eyes with
his hand, hiding from a light.
Flashback. Covering his
eyes from a light with one hand, John approaches another
hand. He carries a gun with a silencer, what shots right
away. A body of a guard falls down on a floor. John picks
up his tools. Then he grabs a dead body and pulls it
inside a small room. He closes a door behind him.
Present Time. When the door
is closed up, a light turns on. The man is in a hotel
bathroom. He walks closer to a sink and turn on a water.
Then the man fills up both his hands with a water and
approaches it to his face.
Flashback. John dives in to
a lake and swims fast. Lights search around deserted shore
and over lake's surface. Siren's noise is heard in the
night. Two guards run on lake's shore. John swims away
from lake's coast and dives deeper into dark water.
Flashback. John's face
doves out a water. His hands hold borders of a bath. John
wipes his face with a hand and gets out of a bath. A few
minutes later, John sits behind a dinning table. His
girlfriend Vicky sits across the table and smiles at John
happy. The table is served romantically. John tells Vicky
that he is a special agent of CIA, but not a teacher as
she used to think he is. She tells him she is pregnant. A
phone rings unexpectedly, what causes a glass of wine gets
out of Vicky's hand and falls down. A red wine splashes
over white carpet.
Flashback. A blood splashes
over snow. John covers his shoulder, running away through
a forest. Two guards chase after him, shooting with
automatic rifles. John finds his secret place and skies
down a hill. Suddenly, the hill cuts off and John flies as
a bird. In a moment he falls on a snow.
Present Time. The man lies
on a bed. He is face down over snow-white bed-dressing. A
phone rings. The man's hand picks up the phone.
Flashback. A man's hand
picks up a phone and moves it closer to man's face. The
CIA officer briefly talks over the phone and hangs up it.
John sits on a chair and looks at his chief. The CIA
officer tells John that they know about what John told
Vicky and it goes against the policy of CIA. John accepts
his mistake and promises to fix it. John leaves the room,
closing a door behind him.
Flashback. Late evening.
John leaves a house, closing a door behind him. In a
moment, Vicky walks out after him. He runs downstairs to
his parked car. For a moment John glances back at Vicky
and promises her to come back soon. John's car drives
away, showing its license place.
Flashback. The same license
place is dirty in soot, being creased by fire. John's car
is burnt in total lost condition. Junkyard men talks about
this car and guesses who used to drive it so it is burnt
out. A police car with lights on arrives at the junkyard.
Present Time. Police
blue-and-red lights bright a road. Siren is over
night-road's noises of moving traffic. Someone's car pulls
over, being stopped by police. The man looks at this scene
through a hotel window. Then he closes the window and
steps back. He grabs the picture of John from the coffee
table and drops it inside the open bag. The image of John
smiles out from the picture in the bag.
Flashback. A dark-gray
gravestone with a picture of John is on it glitter with
wet snow. John's name is shown on the grave.
Present Time. John's
pictured face is smiles out from the bag. The man zips the
bag. Someone knocks at a hotel door. The man slowly walks
closer to the door. Knocking is repeated. The man opens
the door. Vicky smiles at the man and hugs him. Then the
man grabs his bag and leaves the hotel room after Vicky.
They walk together down a hall. When they step inside the
elevator cabin, the man turns back. It's John. He smiles
widely and happy. The elevator's doors slide to close.
