Synopsis: Hanna (Ronan) is a teenage girl. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the skills of a soldier; these come from being raised by her father (Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland. Living a life unlike any other teenager, her upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one; sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity.

I just missed your heart.

You are dead right now.

I've killed you.

Use your hands.

Drag the deer back yourself

What's wrong?

Are you hurt?

You were half asleep.

You must always be ready.

Even when you're sleeping.

Think on your feet.

- Adapt...

- Or die.

I'll do better next time.


I'll do better next time.


I'll do better next time.



Did you really want

me to snap your neck?

How much did you pull off the deer?

In 120 parts.

I think so.

That explains it.


How you beat me.

You've getting stronger.

I'm glad you didnt snap my neck.

The great blue whale is the

largest animal to have ever existed.

Its heart weighs 1300 pounds.

And the male has 7 gallons of...


The blue whale's music can be

heard for over five hundred miles..

A blue whale's tongue weighs

overs two and a half tons. 41.

What does music feel like?


- a combination of sounds

with a view to beauty of form

and expression of emotion.

I want to hear it for myself.

We've all we need right here.

It's not enough.

I'm ready.

Papa, I'm ready.

I also have a dog called Trudy.

I'm ready.

I'm ready now.

Did you see it? Did you hear it?

It's like thunder! It was so beautiful!

What is it?

It tells Marissa Wiegler where we are

If you think you're ready,

and you want to leave here,

all you have to do is flip that switch.

But once it's done

there's no going back.

She won't stop until you're dead,

or she is. You understand?

I won't be there to hold your hand.

So be sure

Be sure it's what you really want.

It's here. There's no rush. 80mm

Laika, a mongrel dog

from the street of Moscow,

was the first animal to orbit the Earth.

She was launched into outer space

on the third of November, 1957.

Scientists believe humans

would be unable to survive

the conditions of outer space.

So flights by animals were used

as experiments precursory

to human missions.

A rocket was not designed

to be retrievable,

and laika has always

been, intended to die

But she didn't, did she?

They couldn't bring the

rocket back, remember?

I remember.

But sometimes I wish you

would read it differently.

When a star collapses,

the supernova explosion

is ten billion times

brighter than the other stars

Will you hunt with me?

If you want.

Well, it's up to you.

Me? Yes

I'll stay.

Yes, good.

Marissa Wiegler...

...come and find me.

You were lucky to have caught that deer.

There was nothing out there today.

The smell's good.

When will it be ready?


We've picked up an unencrypted

signal. One of ours.


- 0630, 2 Eastern Standard.

Triangulated about 60 miles

below the Arctic Circle.

Near kazuma. We think it is Erik Heller.

- Erik Heller?

- You're his handler, right?

Sure, the name sounds familiar.

F*** Erik.

Why now?

How does it look?


Almost good.

Erik Heller, recruited in 1991.

Formal FSK operative He

became integral to our

Counter Intelligence Ops in Eastern

Europe and Central Asia.

His file ends in '94.

There was no sign of

life until April 18, 1996,

when his fingerprints were

found on a 22 calibre ruger,

found beside body of one, Johanna Zadek.

Johanna Zadek, born in 1970, German

She was spotted and

developed by Heller in 1994.

- Never recruited.

- Why was she being developed?

That's not in the file.

Let's keep on the past.

Heller is a rogue asset. I

propose we go and pull him out.

We got bigger problems, Marissa.

Let Interpol pick him up. He's

no longer our responsibility.

Interpol nabs him, that

exposes him to BND, FSB, France.

Do you really want

every intelligence agency

in Europe scratching at this threat?

- Lewis?

- I'm Sorry,

but we need to keep this

contained, gentlemen.

Keep it small. I've

worked with this man.

He knows things I don't

think you wanna know.

I appreciate your candor.

- What do you need Lewis? -

One man, one-day operation.

- Tell me again.

- Marissa Wiegler.

- Then?

- Postcard.

- Then?

- What?

- The address where we meet.

- Wilhelm Grimm House,

Stefan Straza, 21610559,

Berlin, Germany.

- Then what else?

- Adapt or die.

- Think on your feet...

- ... Even when I'm sleeping.


Remember what I taught

you and you will be fine.

I'll see you there.

Macalahan, do you read me?


Macalahan, do you read me?

Go, go, go.

Erik Heller escaped.

How did that happen?

Unclear. We think he got

away in the snow storm or

And 'something bigger

than that I can manage.

- One man, one day of operations. Just find him, Lewis.

- Look there were many variables.

Find him and bring him to me.

There was a kid. Things

got out of our control!


Wiegler, are you there?

Where is she now?

Hello, Hanna.


My name is Dr. Burton.

Would you like to talk to me?

I was told by my father

to gain the upper hand.

That's very interesting.

What else did your father tell you?

Where am I?

You are in holding.

I've never been in a room like this.

Must all be very strange for you.

How long have you been

in the forest? 180mm.


- Are those cameras?

- Uhuh.

They're taking our pictures right now,

to keep a record.

How does that make you feel?

Camera obscura...

It's Latin, for dark chamber.

It was first described

by the Arabic scientist

Ibn al-Haytham in the year 1021.

Plug the cctv through to Langley.

Hey, you should have a visual

on the psych evaluation there

Can I get you something?

What do you like?

Music, magazines

Just ask, anything.

I want to speak to Marissa Wiegler.

- Tell her I'll be there tonight.

- I can handle this.

Just do what you're told.

John, take a look at

this kid's blood sample

- Is that right?

- Is it?

- Can be right.

- Got a sample of her hair.

Must be contaminated. Run it again.

My name is Marissa Wiegler.

You wanted to speak with me?

Where am I?

You are in a safe place, sweetie.

Where did you meet my father?


You mean Erik?


I met him by a news kiosk at

Alexander Platz. East Berlin.

I met him at a news kiosk,

- Alexanderplatz...

- Say it was raining.

...in the rain.

He'd just arrived from Prague.

You know where your father is?
