In Code Name Banshee, it’s been about five years since Banshee (Jaime King) lost her CIA agent father during a covert mission. His partner Caleb (Antonio Banderas) survived the ambush orchestrated by terrorist Anthony Greene (Tommy Flanagan). Caleb then disappeared without a trace, leaving Banshee alone with her grief.
In the meantime, the young woman has become an extremely efficient contract killer who works with the hacker Kronos (Aleksander Vayshelboym) and is handsomely rewarded for her assassinations. However, she continues to search for Caleb, who once trained her as a kind of godfather on the gun.
When she has just found the man, Greene suddenly reappears on the scene, who has also been looking for the man in hiding. So Banshee and Caleb not only have to finally face their past, but also fight for a future together. If only for Caleb’s teenage daughter Hailey (Catherine Davis)…
