Bella isn't evil. But even people with good intentions can end up doing bad things. And when John Wilkes Booth - the most charismatic and famous actor of his time - sets his sights on Bella, an assistant seamstress to Mary Todd Lincoln, he is able to persuade her to help with his plot against President Lincoln. Deep down, though, Bella still knows right from wrong and is willing to put her own safety on the line to save the president. But it's too late for Booth to turn back, and he won't let anyone stand in his way - even if it means hurting Bella in the process.
