Operation MKUltra. The CIA’s most secret project. Involving mind-control
under the influence of drugs and hypnosis, it uses unwitting individuals
for intelligence gathering and counter-espionage.
The illicit experiments carried out under MKUltra can have terrifying –
sometimes tragic – human consequences.
It is Senator Joe Maguire’s task to monitor the goings-on of MKUltra and to
pick up the pieces when things go wrong. A fundamentally decent man,
Maguire is plagued with doubts about what he is doing. Just how far should
one go to protect democracy against those who whould destroy it?
