Bodyguard and hired killer Ivan is weary of the violent and murderous lifestyle he’s been living. He decides it’s time to leave the employment of his boss, the Russian gangster Dimitri Molenski. But the arrival of a large crate changes everything.
Inside the crate is a beautiful, unbelievably lifelike android, which has been modelled on Molenski’s dead girlfriend, Inga. But despite what Ivan thinks, Molenski doesn’t want this almost perfect replica of Inga for any sexual desire or personal gratification. No, he wants to torture and kill her… slowly. To make her suffer in the way he’d been denied doing to the real Inga, 20 years before.
There’s a snag though. Ivan begins to fall in love with the human form robot, and he fails to see that she’s been programmed to assassinate the warped Molenski. When the attempt fails, and his boss is about to destroy the android he’s fallen for, Ivan suddenly makes the decision to save her and go on the run.
What follows is a chase through the mean streets of Chicago, with determined killers on their heels and a growing fascination and impossible love developing between Ivan and the beautiful but deadly android.
