Johns is a German scientist who escapes from a POW camp, murders an Australian doctor, and assumes his identity. This gives him access to a British laboratory so he can continue bacteriological experiments he started in Germany. The Nazis want to infect the British population with a deadly

serum, and Johns plans to see it through. Pilbeam is a lab assistant who becomes his love interest. Beatty, another assistant, grows suspicious and finally exposes Johns. The film wasn't released in the US until 1953 and was thought then to be too violent. Whittingham's script is indeed powerful
