Only with him does she find out that the powerful secret society 'The Hand' is after Abby. Its leader Roshi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) has now put his most dangerous man, Kirigi, and his creepy henchman on Elektra, Abby and Marc. Harshly rejected by Stick, Elektra sees only one chance: She has to face the fight with the merciless Kirigi, the man with whom she shares a gruesome secret ...
