Victor Maynard (Bill Nighy) is a middle-aged, lone assassin, who only lives to please his formidable mother, Louisa (Eileen Atkins), in spite of his own unrivalled reputation for exacting lethal efficiency on his targets.
His professional routine is interrupted when he finds himself attracted to one of his intended victims, Rose (Emily Blunt). When he spares her life, he unexpectedly acquires a young apprentice in the process, Tony (Rupert Grint).
Believing Victor to be a private detective, his two new companions tag along, while he attempts to thwart the murderous attentions of his unhappy client (Rupert Everett).
