The scene opens with an agent of the CIA giving a polygraph to Annie Walker.

There is a flashback with Annie and a man on the island and they are falling in love. Annie buys two bracelets from an island boy on the beach and the boy tells that they will never be apart. She wakes up in the morning only to find a note that says, „It’s complicated”. The agent asks if she was to join the CIA, could she separate her personal life from business. She tells that she can. At Camp Peary, a CIA Training facility, a man is giving orders to those in a plane and tells that they are going to jump out of a airplane at low altitude. He asks who is going to go first. Annie Walker raises her hand and the commander is not surprised. Annie lands and soldiers tell that she has to go with them.
