The couple rent a condo owned by a secret service agent away on assignment. Everything is proceeding normally until Ray discovers a 35-millimeter camera with film still inside of it, hidden in the back of a cabinet. When he jokes that they should develop the film and see what's on it, he gets a firm rebuke from Grace.
But eventually Ray's curiosity gets the better of him. Without Grace's knowledge, he has the film developed. What he discovers plunges them both into an international intrigue involving the FBI, CIA, and Britain's MI6.
Following a trail that uncovers international espionage, corruption at the highest levels of government, and a major assassination plot, Ray's loyalties to his adopted country, and even his relationship with Grace, are tested, as he risks his life to unravel the conspiracy surrounding The Photograph.
