Patience Phillips (Halle Berry) has spent her entire life trying to please other people. Working for a huge cosmetics company, she accidentally stumbles across a dark and dangerous secret behind the company's revolutionary, new anti-ageing cream. The problem is, they know she knows, and they'll do anything to keep Patience quiet... and that means murder. Mystically reborn, Patience becomes the sexy, sleek and mysterious Catwoman. Revived and empowered by her new found feline abilities, she's on the prowl for adventure... and revenge. All that stands in her way is the icy Laurel (Sharon Stone) - a bitter ex-model with something to hide, and Tom Lone (Benjamin Bratt) - a cop torn between romance and duty. But Patience is now a force to be reckoned with - she's got attitude, she's dangerous... she is Catwoman.
