In a secret lab, a woman awakens from a bizarre dream. She’s alone, immersed in a tank with wires and tubes. The other test subjects are dead—drowned in black water.

Leaving a trail of bodies, she runs. Now, she must discover who these men are and why they want her dead. But a debilitating fever rages inside Jane. In the lab, she was on an experimental drug. And without it, she will die.

Many of you are familiar with the French director, Luc Besson. He’s famous for movies such as ‘The Fifth Element,’ ‘Nikita,’ and ‘Lucy.’ Recently, I caught another of his films on Amazon Prime—something I wasn’t familiar with.
