MEMORY OF A KILLER, THE
aka THE ALZHEIMER CASE [DE ZAAK ALZHEIMER]
Impaired by Alzheimer's, veteran assassin Angelo Ledda (Jan Decleir, BLIND SPOT, LOFT) is appalled to discover that his intended target is a 12-year-old girl. Refusing to kill her, Ledda breaks his contract, only to have his boss carry out the hit instead. Incensed, Ledda vows vengeance and sets out to find the man who ordered the child's death. Systematically wiping out middlemen and go-betweens, Ledda leaves a bloody trail that is followed by Chief Inspector Vincke (Koen De Bouw, THE PRIME MINISTER), a police detective desperate to learn what links the dead girl with the most powerful men in Belgium.
