Paris, 1940. The Germans are closing in around France. Many French have confidence that the Maginot Line will keep the Germans out. But they are unaware that the Fifth Column spies are already infiltrating the country and are busy undermining its politics, business, and citizens by using agitation, sabotage, propaganda, and any other means available.

Captain Bill Hamilton, an intelligence officer for MI5, is assigned to find out if Ann Morgan, an American fashion designer for Florien in Paris, is part of the Fifth Column.
