An imaginative eleven-year-old boy creates a dream world in which he is a secret agent trying to carry out a dangerous mission. His illusions become frighteningly real when he witnesses an actual murder while playing his imaginary game.

A boy discovers that there's a sinister plot afoot to smuggle top-secret military information out of the U.S. inside a cassette of his favorite video game, "Cloak and Dagger." Unable to convince his dad that he's telling the truth about the enemy agents and the murder they've committed, the boy enlists the help of his imaginary friend, a dashing spy named Jack Flack.
