On the run from his past, an ex-IRA assassin tried to leave the killing behind. A mob leader coerces him into killing one last time for a promise of freedom. The priest who accidently witnesses the slaying is forced to keep silent when he confesses to him, but the mob leader orders the assassin to murder the priest. And the three lives intersect for one moment when the only commandment is...kill or be killed.
