James Robertson-Justice plays (Sir Ernest Pease.) an important scientist sent on a bombing mission to see how a raid goes. As we can all guess, the plane is attacked and he parachutes to safety only to be sent to a pow camp,where he takes on the alias of Lt Farrow. When the senior British officer learns who he is, Farrow is helped to escape.
The film is held together by Robertson-Justice, whose performance lifts the film out of the ordinary.
