Isabelle, an ex-nun who believes that God has an as yet unspecified mission set aside for her, keeps herself fed by writing short stories for a pornographic magazine. One day, she meets Thomas, a confused but insightful amnesiac wandering the streets of New York City. When they set out to discover Thomas's past, Isabelle suspects that it's somehow linked with a desperate young porn actress, Sofia. Before long, Isabelle, Thomas and Sofia are being pursued by blood thirsty corporate assassins, who desperately want to kill Thomas.
