The official synopsis for the film goes like this (though we think the Sweden bit is a slip, the film's actually set in Finland):

Hanna is a teenage girl. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a solider; these come from being raised by her father, an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Sweden.

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.

As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity.

Hanna is set for release in 2011.
