Jay and Gal are former soldiers who have become hitmen since they left the military. While Gal is laid back, Jay is still suffering from an unspecified disastrous mission in Kiev. Despite the urging of his wife Shel, he has not worked since, and they are running out of money. Shel organises a dinner party to which she invites Gal and his latest girlfriend, Fiona, a human resources manager.. During the evening,Gal reveals he has a new job for them, which Shel encourages him to take.. Meanwhile, Fiona goes to the toilet, carves a symbol on the back of the bathroom mirror, and takes a tissue that Jay had used to mop up his blood after a shaving accident. Jay accepts the job, and the two meet the shadowy client, who has a list of three people he wants killed.. The employer unexpectedly cuts Jay's hand and his own, so that the contract is effectively signed in blood...

Kiev or Kyiv ) is the capital and the largest city of Ukraine, located in the north central part of the country on the Dnieper River. The population in July 2013 was 2,847,200(though higher estimated numbers have been cited in the press), making Kiev the 8th largest city in Europe..The city's name is said to derive from the name of Kyi, one of its four legendary founders (see Etymology, below). During its history, Kiev, one of the oldest cities in Eastern Europe, passed through several stages of great prominence and relative obscurity. The city probably existed as a commercial centre as early as the 5th century...The first known formal subdivision of Kiev dates to 1810 when the city was subdivided into 4 parts: Pechersk, Starokyiv, and the first and the second parts of Podil. In 1833–1834 according to Tsar Nicholas I's decree, Kiev was subdivided into 6 police raions; later being increased to 10. In 1917, there were 8 Raion Councils (Duma), which were reorganised by bolsheviks into 6 Party-Territory Raions..The Jews in Kiev are first mentioned in a 10th century letter. They experienced several pogroms, including the Babi Yar massacre during the Holocaust.. Today there are approximately 20,000 Jews in Kiev, with 2 major synagogues..One of Kiev's widely recognized modern landmarks is the highly visible giant Mother Motherland statue made of titanium standing at the Museum of the Great Patriotic War on the Right bank of the Dnieper River.. Other notable sites is the cylindrical Salut hotel, located across from Glory Square and the eternal flame at the World War Two Memorial Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the House with Chimaeras..Kiev's theatres include, the Kiev Opera House, Ivan Franko National Academic Drama Theatre, Lesya Ukrainka National Academic Theater of Russian Drama, the Kiev Puppet Theater, October Palace and National Philharmonic of Ukraine and others. In 1946 Kiev had 4 theatres, one opera house and one concert hall, but most tickets then were allocated to "privileged groups"..Among the numerous islands, Venetsianskyi (or Hidropark) is the most developed. It is accessible by metro or by car, and includes an amusement park, swimming beaches, boat rentals, and night clubs. The Victory Park (Park Peremohy) located near Darnytsia subway station is a popular destination for strollers, joggers, and cyclists. Boating, fishing, and water sports are popular pastimes in Kiev..Since introducing a visa-free regime for EU-member states and Switzerland in 2005, Ukraine has seen a steady increase in the number of foreign tourists visiting the country.. Prior to the 2008–2009 recession the average annual growth in the number of foreign visits in Kiev was 23% over a 3-year period..In 2009 a total of 1.6 million tourists stayed in Kiev hotels of which almost 259,000 (ca. 16%) were foreigners..The Institute of Oil Transportation is headquartered here..There are about 530 general secondary schools and ca. 680 nursery schools and kindergartens in Kiev..Additionally, there are evening schools for adults, and specialist technical schools..Kiev is twinned with...'re gonna be with me Cameron, no matter what.. After all, brothers should be close, don't you think?..You sound just like him.. Like Ruth...
