This fact-based four-hour miniseries is set in the 1950s, an era when the CIA was actively researching the possibilities of brainwashing and other forms of mind-control. The chilling tale takes place in a Montreal mental facility and centers on a ruthless CIA-funded experiment in which 150 patients were brainwashed without their consent.
