About the film:

World Premiere, 2023 Newport Beach Film Fest

Seasoned assassin Wilson (Ian McShane) is on final assignment in the island of Fuerteventura to kill a man he has never met. When the target is delayed, Wilson’s plans must change. Instead of following protocol and returning to London, Wilson decides to stay on the island—it’s been a long time since he’s had a vacation. When his target finally returns, Wilson is still there waiting for him, as he had been a few days earlier. But in this brief time, everything has changed. He came to kill a man who he had never laid eyes on. That was easy. Now, nothing will be.
