The Manchurian Candidate


An update of the 1962 Cold War classic. About a decade ago, a group of soldiers were ambushed, and saved by the actions of a sergeant. The sergeant is now running for Vice President of the US. His former commander is still in the army, when he discovers that what he remembers of the ambush may not be all that happened. As things develop, he comes to realise that there may be a lot more to the sergeant than meets the eye...
