Featuring Milla Jovovich, also included in the cast is Angus Macfadyen, Stephen Dorff, Aisha Tyler and Sarah Strange. The story begins with battered girlfriend, Kat (played by Milla Jovovich) talking about her Scottish gangster boyfriend, Al (played by Angus Macfadyen). Their lives are displayed in flashback. Together, they steal and deal guns, earning a lucrative living in the down and dirty streets of New York. Al also displays a great deal of anger, jealously and bigotry most of the time since he is a dangerous thug. He also regularly cheats on Kat with other women. We learn that after his mother and father broke up, Al was taken to live with his father in Scotland where he learned to survive on the street. Kat is a willing assistant to Al, despite his mental and sexual abuse. She lures in new customers while also selling guns for her own benefit, including his enemy, Jose. Al catches him talking to Kat, becomes infuriated and gets drunk. He also realizes one night that he could do and earn much more on his own. He beats up Kat very badly, since he also believes that she is dallying with Jose. Vic (played by Sarah Strange) is Kat’s best friend and also romantically in love with her. She has always wanted her to leave Al. Al's side kick, Reilly (played by Stephen Dorff) is also very much in love with Kat and would like her all to himself. They manage to convince Kat to seek the help of a case worker(played by Aisha Tyler) who specializes in dealing with battered women. As Kat gains strength, she slowly begins to persuade and seduce all of her friends, including Al’s colleagues to help her exact vengeance. In they end, she does whatever it takes to get back at Al for all of his abusive behavior.
