Natasha Romanov is on the run from General Ross after her decision to go against the Sokovia Accords by allowing Captain America and Bucky Barnes to escape T’Challa. Now in hiding in Norway she is forced to confront the darker parts of her past when her estranged sister, Yelena Belova, sends her a case of vials taken from a former agent that can bring down the Black Widow programme.
Intent on reclaiming the vials, General Dreykov, the mastermind behind the Black Widow program, sends his latest creation Taskmaster to pursue Natasha. While Natasha believes Dreykov to be dead from her assassination attempt back in Budapest as she defected to S.H.I.E.L.D. a dangerous web of espionage involving the Black Widow program ties Nathasha back to her past. She must deal with both her history and broken relationships, from her “family” days back in the USA with her sister and parents Alexi and Melina, her training at the Red Room and her defection from the Black Widows.
Reunited with her “family” they decide to work together and using all of their abilities they make their way to the Red Room to defeat Natasha’s dangerous creator and free the Black Widows from his control.
Several years later Yelena is visiting the grave of Natasha after she sacrificed her life on Vormir. But her reflections are disturbed by the coughing of Contessa Valentina Allegra De Fontaine. Val has learned that Hawkeye was responsible for the death of her sister and sends Yelena off to take revenge on the Avenger.
