Britney meets a guy with whom she falls instantly in love. It’s made clear to the audience that Britney is an assassin/hitman as we see her kill a group of people in a car (hence the gun pictures that were leaked to the media). She is given her next assignment, who turns out to be the guy she fell in love with at the beginning of the video. They go to meet in their favorite spot, but Britney is not there. She is across the street with a rifle and her target set on him. She looks through the scope and sees her man holding a ring he made for her. She leaves and aborts the mission to kill him. She leaves town because she knows she is not safe around him. Doing this, she knows she will be killed for abandoning her mission to kill this guy. She hides out in a hotel and is taken by other assassins and beaten, tied to a chair, etc. She has sacrificed herself for this man. We see time pass as he dates a new girl, gets married, has a baby, etc. We see him looking out a window thinking about Britney, his true love that disappeared. Then, we see Britney on the floor of her hotel room, barely alive, as her body slowly turns to ash. There’s a shot of Britney in the hotel room smiling as their eyes seem to meet. Her body then disintegrates. The final shot of the video is Britney and her lover kissing in the sunset.
They turned the video into a cheating scandal rather than its true storyline exploring the idea of sacrifice because her team thought it would put a lot of negative media attention on Britney. Mainly because of the killing scenes. [x]
