During World War II, British scientist Sir Ernest Pease (James Robertson Justice) is helping the Allies with his groundbreaking inventions, but a trial flight with his new radar system goes awry. Although he parachutes to safety, he does so over Germany and is promptly placed in a POW camp with other Brits. When they learn that Sir Ernest is a vital player in the war effort, they devise a daring escape plan that involves inmate Everett (Stanley Baxter) impersonating the camp's commandant.
