Magicians

Synopsis

Since they were 13, Harry and Karl have worked as a successful magic double act, devising and perfecting tricks. When, at the height of their fame, Harry catches Karl red handed with his wife, a terrible accident happens: Harry chops his wife and assistant's head off carrying out the guillotine trick. We join them four years later, where they meet again at an international magic competition, the Magic Table Shield. Harry needs to win the cash prize whilst Karl wants to launch his TV career in his new guise as a 'mentalist'. Although they can't put their differences aside, they soon realise they need each other to succeed in the magic world.
