Secret Service agents Brass Bancroft (Ronald Reagan) and Gabby Watters (Eddie Foy Jr.) believe they have uncovered an enemy agent: a homeless man found dead in a train crash, who had $50,000 in cash and incriminating tattoos. With this lead, Brass takes the dead man's place to find out what his ultimate goal was. It turns out that the man had ties to terrorists whose intent is to destroy a dirigible, the "Mason," which is transporting a potentially game-changing weapon for the U.S. Navy.
