Glimpses of the neon-lit city of Tokyo. Someone shudders and gasps. In a voiceover, we hear KATE (Adult) discussing her retirement with VARRICK (Adult). Varrick tells Kate that he will meet her in Tokyo to discuss retirement after she finishes her assignment.

Kate, alone in a bar, ends her phone conversation with Varrick. STEPHEN (Adult), an American, flirts with her, and the two have sex in Kate’s room. She pays him and he leaves.

A BELLBOY (Adult) brings a cart with wine and a case containing a scope rifle. She drinks the wine, assembles the gun, and leaves with a precise efficiency.

She is directed via an earpiece to the roof of an adjacent building. There, she assembles the rifle. As she is about to shoot her target, a horrible pain grips her stomach, and she vomits blood. The target leaves, but she tracks him and kills him. As she drives her escape vehicle, the pain becomes unbearable, and she crashes the car.
Sometime later, Kate awakes in the hospital, and is informed by her doctor that she has been poisoned with radioactive material, and has less than a day to live. Determined to find her murderer, Kate escapes the hospital, stealing pain medication...
