Two orphans, Romulus and Remus, are raised by CIA handler John Eliot to be the best in the cloak and dagger game. Decades later, he turns on them and orders their elimination. They decide to fight back and track him down to learn why.

Surely, the subject of both book/movie is an unusual one. I've seen the movie after only 6 month from the release on the market. The two orfans got in the power of a brilliant CIA chief (R.
