During the Second World War, an American Pilot stationed in England meets a young British nurse during an air raid on London. The two instantly fall in love, despite the fact that the young Nurse is already married; a secret she keeps hidden from her American lover. After being shot down behind enemy lines, while being assigned to ferry a British agent into France, the American pilot realizes that his secret agent cargo is in fact his lover's husband, and that the two must now work together in order to survive.

According to the 'Variety Movie Guide', director Peter Hyams
drew his inspiration for this movie from the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer wartime romance, Waterloo Bridge
(1940) as well as other films of that ilk. As such, both film's use a place which acts as both its movie title and the physical location setting where the two wartime lovers meet and begin their brief encounter, "Waterloo Bridge" in the earlier film and "Hanover Street" in this movie. See more
