When an innocent man is sentenced to death for murder, his father takes matters into his own hands. A day before his son's execution, Canadian writer David Graham (Michael Redgrave) delves into England's criminal underworld and turns to increasingly desperate measures in an 11th-hour attempt to uncover any scrap of evidence that may exonerate his condemned son. Graham's search begins at the luxurious home of automotive industry giant Robert Stanford (Leo McKern).
British Air Marshal Hardie (Michael Redgrave) is attending a party in Hong Kong when he hears of a dream, told by a pilot (Michael Hordern), in which Hardie's flight to Tokyo on a small Dakota propeller plane crashes on a Japanese beach. Hardie dismisses the dream as pure fantasy, but while he is flying to Tokyo the next day, circumstances start changing to line up with the pilot's vivid vision, and it looks like the dream disaster may become a reality.
