"The Prodigy" tells the story of small-time enforcer Truman Fisher's vicious conflict with a sadistic assassin who has chosen the unwilling Truman to be his successor. The assassin, who goes by the alias Rains and whose exploits have become the source of legend among Truman's underworld colleagues, drives Truman, through the pressure of constant violence and grief, to understand his own capacity for both bloodshed and compassion. Ultimately this reveals to Truman that he as with all of us, must find our place in this world or as Rains would say "our place in this grand design." This action begins quickly as Truman meets with a turncoat from a rival gang. This tense showdown erupts quickly into mayhem, when Rains makes his unexpected entrance. In the wake of the ensuing bloodbath, Truman is forced to reevaluate his own role in the small, violent world he inhabits, suddenly aware that there are larger powers at work which he does not understand. It soon becomes obvious that the strongest of these is Rains, whose jarring introduction into Truman's life is only the first in a series of carefully calculated steps. During the course of the film, Rains, after kidnapping Truman's, boss's nephew, will force him into the role of detective, spurring Truman to assemble a rogue's gallery of underworld contacts in an effort to find his nemesis. But Rains has a more ambitious agenda than merely terrorizing minor hoods: he soon begins to threaten Truman directly, menacing Truman's love, Nicki, with whom Truman hopes to soon escape from the drab meanness of his life. Rains will also threaten Truman's few true friends and sow deadly confusion among underworld enemies and allies alike. Striking with murderous effectiveness and leaving behind few clues, Rains uses his own near-mythical reputation to cloud his presence and even his own existence. Truman struggles to find his mysterious enemy while at the same time attempting to understand why Rains has chosen him as his target-and as his inspiration.

Rewarded for his perceptive eye and mastery of foreign languages, Kevin receives the promotion he has been working for - a coveted spot on the company's internal security team. Trained by the enigmatic Mr. Ficks to protect the firm's employees in volatile, third world markets, Kevin thinks he has a shield for every arrow. And this makes him feel safe, or at least "safer" than he's felt since his father's mysterious death. Karl Jorgensen, the Managing Director of the bank, is Kevin's boss and surrogate father. He has mentored Kevin over the years, which makes his biological son, Karl Jorgensen Junior, visibly jealous. Jorgensen brushes off the "sibling rivalry", but clearly favors Kevin, molding him into a confident, young man. It is this confidence that gives Kevin the courage he needs to propose to the woman he loves. One smile from Rosalind Bremmond and it is easy to understand the attraction. A "rain making" broker in the bank's commodities division, Rosalind is concerned about the dangers of Kevin's new job. Kevin silences her with a kiss and prepares to propose but before he can give her the ring, an assassin's bullet shatters Rosalind's heart and crushes Kevin's soul. Having lost all hope for the future, Kevin is driven to seek revenge. His fury might well be directed at Tessa Jansen, a strong beauty who tracks Kevin from afar, lurking in the shadows of the crime scene. But first, he must find the truth. Kevin thought he knew his girlfriend, but who was she really, and why did someone want her dead? Frustrated by the local police and Willem van der Zee, an agent from Interpol, Kevin turns to Jorgensen, who places the full resources of the Security Division at Kevin's disposal. As Kevin investigates Rosalind's death, he uncovers her secret life as a money launderer and is slowly indoctrinated into a web of corporate espionage and assassination. His efforts quickly make him a target for Rosalind's enemies, agents from Interpol, and the Dutch authorities, all of whom assume Kevin's involvement predated her death. In this time of chaos, who can he trust? Karina, the bank's office manager and Kevin's surrogate mother? Thorsten, a local Coffee Shop owner and Kevin's loyal hacker buddy? Think again. Amidst the hailstorm of bullets and ever-shifting sands, Kevin must carry on his quest a quest to learn the true identity of the killer, while trying to reconcile the real Rosalind with the woman he loved. Who wanted her dead? Who crushed Kevin's soul and molded him into a vengeful gunman? Who is the soul assassin?
