The Killer plot: What is it about?

Here’s the official Netflix synopsis for The Killer…

After a fateful near-miss an assassin battles his employers, and himself, on an international manhunt he insists isn’t personal. 

Fassbender plays the assassin in question, and Variety asked Ori Marmur – co-chief of the Netflix Original Studio Film Group – for more details about the movie: “It’s vintage Fincher, just from the title alone it’s right in the lane that you want to see him in,” says Marmur, before adding. “I don’t want to give too much away. I don’t want David to come in and kill me!”
