Lucy (Johansson) is forced to be a drug mule by crime boss Mr Jang (Choi), but when the drugs leak into her system, she acquires superhuman powers.

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
Luc Besson’s drama stars Scarlett Johansson as a woman who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. With Morgan Freeman.
