The video is more than 6 minutes long. An assassination plot is currently in progress and Widowmaker is the assassin, her target a robot named Halo (probably his code name in the animated short, he goes by Zenyatta in the game as one of the playable heroes) who looks like a spiritual leader of sorts is talking in front of a crowd of humans as well as robots about the peace between them. The location, a public place in London King’s Row. Also in the crowd is Tracer, another playable hero in the game. She notices that something is amiss and goes to investigate.
