England, 1940. Leaving an asylum where he has spent the last two years, Stephen Neale decides to return  to London, even though the capital is under attack from German bombers.  On the way, he stops at a garden fete where he wins a cake by correctly guessing its weight.  In the train to London, Neale strikes up a conversation with a blind man, who suddenly assaults him and runs off with the cake.  Neale gives chase, but the blind man falls victim to a German shell.  Convinced that he has become caught up in an elaborate plot, Neale hires a private detective and conducts his own investigation.  This leads him to the organisers of the charity which arranged the fete where he acquired the mysterious cake – Austrian refugees Willi and Carla Hilfe.  At a séance attended by members of the charity, a man is killed and Neale is the obvious culprit.  Carla makes discoveries of her own and it soon becomes clear that there is more at stake than Neale’s life.  The security of Great Britain is under threat, and from a very dangerous enemy…
