Plot Overview

A scientist who has evidence of a nerve gas formula returns to the States after defecting, only to be accidentally killed in a scuffle with his millionaire father, a neo-Nazi, who buries the body somewhere on the grounds of his huge estate. Believing the formula to be somewhere on the scientist's body, the IMF tries to find out where the body is buried by 'scaring' the paranoid millionaire. At the same time, they must also outwit a mercenary working for a foreign government who's also after the formula.
