DHS- Salma Hayek in Everly

Everly

Everly is the title protagonist of the film of the same name. She is portrayed by actress Salma Hayek.

Backstory[]

She is a prostitute working for the brutal criminal overlord Taiko. That overlord later attacks her in her own apartment after Taiko's enforcers discovers that she has been working with the police to bring down his organization. However, though Taiko expected his men to kill her easily after torturing her, Everly retrieves a gun she had hidden and manages to kill all of her attackers inside the entire building.

Taiko then begins a sadistic game of toying with Everly, dispatching numerous hired killers and offering the other prostitutes in the building (which he presumably owns) a bounty if they manage to kill her. Meanwhile, Everly attempts to contact her mother, Edith, and young daughter, Maisey, in order to save them from other henchmen of Taiko and get them out of the situation alive.

As the film progresses, it is revealed that Everly was a prisoner in the plush apartment after having been kidnapped by Taiko four years earlier and forced into prostitution. She has had no contact with Edith or Maisey during that time, and they are confused and angry at the deadly situation they are suddenly thrust into. As Everly fights off the numerous attacks, the foes become more outlandish; originally they are simply armed thugs, but eventually they appear in costumes and with themed groups for extravagant tortures. Everly is finally subdued, but manages to kill Taiko after his soldiers have left.
