Philips (Halle Berry) is a woman who just won’t stand up for
herself -- and the world is more than willing to step all over her in
return. A meek people-pleaser, she squanders her considerable artistic
talent in a thankless job as a graphics designer for behemoth cosmetics
company Hedare Beauty, a ‘youth and beauty at all
costs’ conglomerate run by the tyrannical George Hedare
(Lambert Wilson) and his icy supermodel wife, Laurel (Sharon Stone).
In a fateful turn of events, Patience’s quiet life is forever
changed when she overhears a conversation revealing that
Hedare’s too-good-to-be-true new anti-aging product is...too
good to be true. Caught in the wrong place at the worst possible time,
Patience is murdered to keep Hedare’s secret safe. But all is
Resurrected by mysterious forces, she awakens…and she
doesn’t come back alone. Suddenly gifted with strength,
agility and ultra-keen senses, she is no longer just Patience -- she is
also Catwoman, a seductive creature delicately balancing on the
dangerously thin line between good and bad.
Her adventures begin as she goes on the prowl to settle a few scores
and have herself some long overdue fun. But Catwoman’s
exploits quickly complicate Patience’s burgeoning
relationship with Tom Lone (Benjamin Bratt), a handsome cop dedicated
to saving the good guys from the bad guys -- and the belief that
there’s no gray area between the two. The detective is
falling for Patience, but he can’t shake his fascination with
the feline fatale who appears to be responsible for a string of crimes
being committed throughout the city.
As her wild side breaks loose, the line between Patience and her
untamed alter ego begins to blur -- and neither of them feel like
playing by anyone else’s rules anymore.
Sometimes you have to die to get a life.
