Storyline

Law enforcement agencies believe that Peter Cordel is a killer for hire, but no evidence linking him to any killings has been uncovered. The IMF is assigned to obtain the evidence needed to arrest Cordel, and to learn the identity of his Syndicate boss. The IMF's lures Cordel, who is a chess master, into a game where he can be given a drug that induces post-hypnotic suggestions. The IMF is then able to convince Cordel that he's suffering from blackouts during which he kills a number of people close to him -- and that his impending mental breakdown will make the Syndicate want him dead.
