When Ted Hendricks, an American pilot during WW 2, is shot down over German occupied France, an underground French resistance cell comes to his rescue. Hendricks's return to England is put on hold when the resistance group, led by a young woman, receives orders to rescue two British SOE agents captured by the Gestapo. Sent to France to recover top secret German Enigma codes, the agents must be rescued at all costs before the Gestapo torture them into revealing what the Allies know about the German secret code. Hendricks joins the resistance group in a daring daylight ambush, and several lives are forever changed as a result of the bloody ambush in the small French village of Roye.
