When Germany invades mainland Britain, Irishman Danny O’Shea’s house is bombed and his wife killed. His young son Adam has learning difficulties and is terrified what the Nazis will do to him. Danny must get Adam to neutral Ireland.
On an isolated Welsh, road they witness an attack on a German convoy carrying the blueprints for a new weapon that was discovered in a secret laboratory near Brecon. German Captain, Eric Weiss, is responsible for the blueprint’s safe transfer to Berlin. He knows his job, even his life, depends on getting the blueprints back.
It's following a major disagreement amongst the insurgents, the blueprint disappears. Danny goes to the aid of a dying woman--both the Germans and the insurgents believe she’s told Danny where the blueprints are.
When Danny is separated from his son, he's catapulted into a world of betrayal and brutal double-cross. Pursued by both the Germans and the insurgents, his only concern is to find Adam and get him to safety.
