It's 1930s England, and Nicky Marlow's just been laid off from his engineering job. It takes him longer to find a job than he'd expected, so he ends up taking a job in Italy as a business manager for a firm that sells machines that make weapons. From the start, the Milan job is a bit dodgy — odd people in the office, even more odd people striking up conversations with him, his passport being "mislaid" by the government.
