WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
After the sudden death of his wife, a man named John Wick (Reeves) takes care of their beagle puppy Daisy, his last gift from her before she died.

What Iosef and his comrades don’t realise is that, by taking away the one thing he had left in this world, they have reawakened one of the deadliest hit-men in the business – and now, he’s on a mission to exact vengeance…
