Plot

Samantha Caine (Geena Davis) is a suburban mother and schoolteacher with a seemingly normal life in Honesdale, Pennsylvaniamarker. However, she was found badly injured and suffering from amnesia several years previously, and has no memory of her past. When she's attacked by an escaped convict, Samantha dispatches her attacker with lethal self-defense skills she wasn't aware she possessed. She hires wisecracking, ethically challenged private investigator Mitch Henessey (Samuel L. Jackson) to help her find the truth about her past. She contacts the mysterious Dr. Nathan Waldman (Brian Cox) who reveals that Samantha is really Charlene "Charly" Baltimore, an assassin for the CIA who went missing eight years ago. When Samantha is captured and tortured by some of her old enemies, her real identity resurfaces. Although initially disdaining her life as 'Samantha', Mitch forces Charly to recognise that she actually liked her time as Samantha as it was the first time she was truly content with herself. While attempting to resolve her conflicted feelings about her past, Charly discovers that her former boss at the CIA, Leland Perkins (Patrick Malahide), has allied with a psychological-operations specialist named Timothy (Craig Bierko) in a false flag plot to detonate a chemical bomb in downtown Niagara Falls, New Yorkmarker, frame "Islamic" terrorists for the crime, and thus secure more funding. She and Mitch set out to thwart the plot and rescue her young daughter, Caitlin (Yvonne Zima) from the clutches of the terrorists, Charly revealing to Timothy during a tense confrontation that he is actually Caitlin's father (Timothy having spent a brief night with Charly on her last mission before her cover was blown). After averting the plot by stealing the tanker and driving it onto a bridge, Charly returns to Samantha's old life, content with it and having realised that she genuinely loves Caitlin, leaving Mitch to enjoy the publicity attracted by his role in the crisis.
