Victor Meynard is an assassin for hire, and he’s proud of it. It’s part of his family’s business. However, in this comedy, there are occasions when he simply cannot bring himself to pull the trigger and make a “hit.” Instead, he adopts the boy who would have fallen to his gun, and trains him in the niceties of the assassin’s game. He is assigned to kill an art forger who is much too cute for such a fate. When he adopts her as well, things really start to get out of hand.
