Warnford has been court-martialled, since the plans for a new tank were in his custody when they were lost. When he crosses paths with Marsden, a burglar but a gentleman, they decide to see if they can help find subversive characters in pre-war London. Soon they learn of a secret service officer named Thomas Hambledon, and start sending him messages of their findings. Tommy wants to find out who they are, though he himself was once in a similar position. Warnford knows it's too much to hope to clear his name, but with Hambledon on his side, almost anything is possible.
