***SPOILERS*** in the not so distance future in an un-named totalitarian controlled nation scientist Martin Decker, Dean Stockwell, is being tortured both mentally and psychically by this Dr. Megele like psycho Dr. Ostroff, Peter Boretski, who looks a lot like TV talk show host Larry King without his famous red spenders. What Dr. Ostroff wants from Martin is where he hid the notebooks on his invention of a secret pest control formula. Martin knows that if just altered a bit the formula can be used to wipe out millions of human beings in any future wars that those tyrants running the country instigate!

It's when Martin get a new cell-mate anti-government revolutionary Joseph, Brent Carves, that he's convinced by him, after many unsuccessful attempts, that he in fact can teleport himself out of his cell and into the free world only by willing it! It takes a while but after a few tries both Martin & Joseph do in fact escape in teleporting themselves out of prison and ending up in a safe house where they can contact Joseph's fellow revolutionaries and help overthrow the government!

***MAJOR SPOILER ALERT*** In his desperate attempt to escape Martin didn't realize that he was being tricked by Joseph, who was actually working with Dr. Ostroff, into telling him where the secret notes on his nerve gas was hidden. What both Joeph & Dr.Ostroff didn't quite realize was that their trying to trick Martin into telling them where the notes were they in fact gave Martin the idea as well as will power to escape his captors! In the end Martin Decker now a free man and getting his hands on the secret notes of the WMD, weapon of mass destruction, that he invented ends up burning them where they'll be in no danger of being used by those who so brutally abused him!

P.S The secret nerve gas that Martin invented was a lot like the chemical weapon invented by Nazi Germany just before the start of WWII called Sarin. Sarin was 100 times more deadly then any other poison gas around at that time and the Germans produced more then ten tons of it during the war. Yet it was so lethal and destructive that even Adolph Hitler forbid its use, that may well have won him the war, against the allies even when his beloved Nazi Germany, as well as himself, was on the brink of total destruction in the waining years of WWII.
