Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie) is a successful CIA agent who abruptly goes on the run when a Russian defector claims that she is actually a sleeper agent, planted long ago and now about to commit a terrible act of terrorism.
Naturally, this only compounds the suspicion about her true identity and soon she's pursued a variety of government agencies, all of whom are out to prevent her completing her alleged deadly mission.
But is she really a traitor, or has she been set up simply to provide distraction from the real conspirator?
