Background Edit

Merritt McKinney is a once-famous mentalist and hypnotist. He can hypnotize people over the phone, toured in the United States, and had two TV specials before his brother stole all his money. In the opening sequence, Merritt hypnotizes a woman to not be able to move or speak, and he exposes her husband's affair using mentalism. Merritt charges the husband $250 to make the woman forget about the affair. One year later, Merritt and three other street magicians are joined together to put on a magic show in Las Vegas as "The Four Horsemen" where the audience is rewarded with money, taken from a bank in Paris. The police are wondering how the magicians stole 3.2 million Euros from a bank vault in Paris in three seconds.
