English Summary:

Major Ben Marco (Denzel Washington) is a war veteran who commanded a famous U.S. Army raid during the Gulf War. For his role in that mission, Sergeant Raymond Shaw (Liev Schreiber) was awarded the Medal of Honor for single-handedly defeating the enemy and rescuing all but two of his men. In a dystopian near-future America defined by xenophobia, de facto martial law, environmental degradation and increasing corporate control, Shaw has gone on to become a famous U.S. Congressman. Thanks to the influence of his mother, United States Senator Eleanor Prentiss Shaw of Virginia (Meryl Streep), Raymond Shaw is nominated as a candidate for vice president over the favorite, U.S. Senator Tom Jordan (Jon Voight). Shaw is withdrawn, but he opens up to his mother and to his childhood sweetheart, Jocelyn (Vera Farmiga); Jocelyn is the daughter of Sen. Jordan.

One of Marco's former NCOs, Corporal Al Melvin (Jeffrey Wright), contacts him and says that he experiences confusing memories and "dreams" about their lost army unit. He is clearly mentally ill, but he shows Marco some images he has drawn from his dreams. Marco begins to also have dreams about being captured on that raid, of being brainwashed by scientists led by a mysterious South African man (Simon McBurney), and of himself and Shaw murdering their fellow soldiers. Marco begins investigating what really happened during the war and travels to New York. A woman named Eugenie (Kimberly Elise), an outgoing supermarket clerk with whom Marco interacts frequently, sits with him on the train and ultimately offers him a place to stay.


Hungarian Summary:

Bennett Marco kapitány és Raymond Shaw őrmester együtt szolgált az Öböl-háborúban, és tagjai voltak annak a szakasznak, akik fogságba estek és akiket agymosásban részesített az ellenség. Most, 10 évvel később Raymond a politikai létrán túlságosan gyorsan halad felfelé anyjának, a nagyhatalmú szenátornak a közbenjárásával. Marco, Shaw-val ellentétben emlékszik agymosásukra. Tudja, hogy csak idő kérdése és egykori katonatársa parancsot kap valami borzalmas tett elkövetésére, ezért megpróbál kapcsolatba kerülni vele...
