An outwardly faithful remake of Besson's La Femme Nikita, but with a new focus on action and violence, Point of No Return tells the story of a drug-addicted young beauty on a fast track to oblivion who is arrested and forced to choose between going to prison to suffer the death penalty or working as an assassin for the U.S. government. She chooses the latter and must undergo specialized and rigorous training. Afterward, she is sent to Venice, California where she falls in love with a photographer. She only kills a few people before she begins looking for a way out. Unfortunately, death seems to be the only way out.
