Sebuah film televisi tentang pesulap legendaris Harry Houdini (Johnathon Schaech). Dikisahkan bagaimana Eric dan Theo Weiss, dua pemuda kakak beradik dari keluarga migran miskin di New York, mengawali karir di dunia ilusi dengan bermodalkan sebuah buku sulap karangan seorang pesulap Perancis bernama Robert Houdin (yang namanya kemudian mereka gunakan sebagai trademark karena dianggap lebih menjual).

Dengan cara flashback, film ini bercerita tentang Eric (yang kemudian dikenal sebagai Harry Houdini): perjalanan karir sulapnya, kerenggangannya dengan Theo sang adik, juga ikatan batinnya dengan sang isteri  Bess Houdini (Stacy Edwards).
