When it starts No time to die, Bond has retired and leads a quiet life with Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), but everything falls apart when the protagonist is made to believe that his partner betrayed him. The two do not meet again for five years, after discovering that it was Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Christopher Walken) who orchestrated it all.
At their reunion, Bond discovers that Madeleine has a daughter named Mathilde and that he is her father. But again, happiness is not made for Bond and the villain Safin (Rami Malek) kidnaps Madeleine and Mathilde and the protagonist must return to action to save them.
In turn, the agent must destroy a virus called Heracles, very dangerous and lethal. Anyone can carry the virus, but it is programmed to end only the life of a specific person. For this, it is only necessary for the bearer to approach the victim.
Bond manages to save Madeleine and Mathilde with the help of the new 007 Names (Lashana Lynch), but when he enters Safin’s base of operations to destroy the virus, things get complicated. The villain manages to cut Bond with a vial and that implies that if the protagonist gets too close to his daughter or Madeleine, he will kill them.
The former MI6 agent is aware that he can never see them again and, despite being mortally wounded, manages to knock Safin down and open the armored doors of his base of operations. Thanks to this, the villain’s facilities are destroyed with the help of missiles, but these also kill Bond.
