Synopsis

Adele, a 22-year-old with a history of bad luck and abusive relationships with men, is contemplating suicide on the edge of a bridge when she encounters Gabor, a professional knife thrower who just happens to be "hiring." He senses that she would make a wonderful new target and offers her the job. She rejects the offer and jumps. He jumps after her and soon the pair are off to Monaco where she suddenly her luck changes dramatically -- not only does she remain unscathed as the target of his now famous "blindfolded throws" but her bets at the roulette table wins her a small fortune. But how long will their luck hold?
