Set in the 1980s, Anne Hathaway plays the lead role of Elena McMahon who walks off the presidential campaign she has been covering for a major newspaper to do a favour for her father. Elena's father does deals. And it is while acting as his agent in one such deal—a deal that shortly goes spectacularly wrong—that she finds herself on an island where tourism has been superseded by arms dealing, covert action, and assassination.
A release date has not yet been announced.
