The main action in the movie focuses on a plot concocted by Adolf Hitler to have members of the German military forces kidnap the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and transport him directly to Germany.

After the Germans parachute into British territory using captured Allied markings, an officer manages to infiltrate a country house where Churchill is allegedly staying in Norfolk. But is the man they assume is Churchill and marked for murder the real prime minister or have the Allies gotten wind of their devious plot and worked to foil their kidnapping attempt?
