Based on the hit TV series. Jim Phelps (Jon Voight) was sent to Prague for a mission to prevent the theft of classified material. His wife Claire (Emmanuelle Béart) and trusted partner Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) were members of Phelps’ team. Unfortunately, something went terribly wrong and the mission failed, leaving Ethan Hunt as the seemingly only survivor. After reporting on the failed mission, Kittridge (Henry Czerny), the head of the agency, suspects Ethan is to blame for the failed mission. Now, Ethan uses unrthodox methods (including the help of an arms dealer named “Max” (Vanessa Redgrave)) to try to find out who cheated on him and clear his name.
