While investigating a mob-hit style murder, Sara is pulled into a web of
deception and conspiracy when it is discovered that her friend Gabriel
Bowman was the last person the dead man contacted, leaving him a cryptic
message on his answering machine. Gabriel deciphers the message and he and Sara
discover what the dead man died for: a canister of 8 mm film. Determined
to find the killer, Sara and Gabriel have the film developed, but not before
they are targeted by the same murderous thugs. Meanwhile, Sara is visited
by by the ghost of JFK, who alludes to a government conspiracy and implores her to be
courageous. The FBI becomes involved in the murder investigation when an agent is killed and Sara is blamed for his murder. Back at the precinct, Danny and Jake clash when Jake becomes friendly with the Feds and Danny accuses him of selling Sara out. On the run from both the FBI and the assassins, Sara is captured by the latter. Refusing to give up Gabriel and the film, Sara finds herself on the other side of the interrogation table and the wrong side of a gun. With no other recourse, Sara calls on the Witchblade and takes out her captors.
Little does she know that she - and the Blade - have been caught on
film. When it is revealed that her captors are top-secret meta-government
agents, will Sara hand over the film footage of JKF's assassination --
rather than have her own secret revealed?
