Summary, etc.:
A spirited caper inspired by a book co-written by Jack London. Reed plays Ivan, the self-confident chief of an association of hitmen for hire, who will refuse no well-paid offer; especially the lucrative challenge of an aspiring reporter.

The game is afoot, and Europe is the playground.
