Mia is a contract killer with a big secret: she’s a transsexual woman. Her life is sent into a tailspin when she receives a letter from her ex, Wendy, who reveals that she’s dying from cancer and that Mia has a son, eleven year old Ryan. Travelling to the countryside to meet him, she discovers the rest of Wendy’s children. A lethal killer at the heart of a troubled family can only change their lives forever.
