The plot of Special Operation: Lioness
Produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios, Special Operation: Lioness is based on a real-life program and follows Cruz Manuelos (Laysla De Oliveira), a rough-and-ready young Marine recruited to join the Lioness Engagement Team to help bring down a terrorist organization from within. The mission, as we understand from the trailer, is “to locate the wives and daughters of high-value targets, infiltrate an agent in their circle and kill the target”. An operation that requires courage and cold blood and for which Cruz does not feel ready.
