Are the conspiracy theorists right? Were there multiple assassins at Dealey Plaza on that fateful day in 1963?

The 1950s. A bright young boy is raised in a state welfare system and struggles with an internal rage that marks him as a sociopath. A team of CIA field agents work covert ops in Soviet-occupied East Berlin. Their specialty: assassinations.

The lives and destinies of these people converge when the boy grows up to become a CIA-trained agent, mentored by the old spies and freelancing as a rogue for the military-industrial complex.

As he prepares for his first assignment as a kill-for-hire mercenary, he copes with identity changes, a CIA sanction, blown covers, women who complicate his work, and personal doubts about a mission that places him in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963.

With JFK in his crosshairs, the youthful rogue knows that success will allow him to retire young, but failure could lead to his own termination. His ambitions and conscience are at odds, and his future rests on the pull of a trigger.
