XIII: The Conspiracy begins with the first female U.S. President being assassinated by a sniper during her Veterans Day speech. Three months later, a wounded man is found tattered in a forest with no memory of his identity. The only clue he has is a "XIII" tattoo on his body. Could XIII's (Dorff) lightning-fast reflexes and killer instincts betray him as the presidential assassin that the U.S. is desperately searching for? Submerged in a far-reaching conspiracy, which threatens to overthrow the entire government, XIII's identity becomes the key to unraveling a complex and dangerous secret. From the first bullet, this gripping action-thriller will leave viewers craving more.
XIII: The Conspiracy also stars Lucinda Davis (The Wool Cap) as Jones, a top CIA operator, Caterina Murino (Casino Royale) as Sam, XIII's trustworthy ally and love interest. Greg Bryk (Immortals, Saw 3D: The Final Chapter) is Amos, a national security officer while Stephen McHattie (Immortals, 2012) stars as General Carrington and Ted Atherton (Max Payne, The Border) is Wally Sharidan, the former U.S. President and a possible traitor.
