Q
What was the Rabbit's Foot?
A
The Rabbit's Foot was basically a MacGuffin - a device used to move the plot along. A MacGuffin usually doesn't require much of an explanation, because it has little bearing on the story. All the audience needs to know is that it's something very important or valuable and that all the players in the story are trying desperately to get their hands on it.

Q
What is 'Mission Impossible III' about?
A
Impossible Missions Force (IMF) agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), retired from field work and currently training new recruits, learns that one of his trainees, Lindsey Farris (Keri Russell), who was following elusive black market arms dealer Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman), has disappeared, Ethan comes out of retirement to find her. When he and his team -- munitions expert Luther Strickell (Ving Rhames), aviation expert Declan Gormley (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), and communication operative Zhen Lei (Maggie Q) -- track down Davian and the mysterious 'rabbit's foot', Davian retaliates by kidnapping Ethan's new wife Julia (Michelle Monaghan).
