With fierce fighting skills and chameleon-like abilities, Violet (MILLA JOVOVICH) sets out to destroy a government-designed time bomb that will eliminate all Hemophages. To Violet’s surprise, the deadline device is a nine-year-old-boy, who was raised in a laboratory and goes by the name of Six (CAMERON BRIGHT).
