Storyline

Crime boss Paul Ostro is reported to have suffered severe facial injuries in a hunting accident, and lies bandaged in bed at his estate. But the IMF suspects that Paul's brother Leo actually killed Paul and substituted a bandaged "puppet" in his place, to issue orders to the family's criminal subordinates, with Leo actually making the decisions. With the family reputed to be planning a new criminal enterprise involving over one hundred million dollars, the IMF's mission is to learn the family's new plan -- which they hope to do by unmasking Leo's surrogate for his brother.
