To eliminate Syndicate partners Frank Stevens and Thomas Kroll, the IMF must convince the elderly Kroll that the last 34 years of his life have been a dream. Once they've convinced him it's the same day in 1937 when Kroll and Stevens killed rival mobster Danny Ryan, they hope to get Kroll to lead them to where the corpse is hidden so they can put the men away for good.
