With courage and determination, a youth leaves his family in the poverty of war torn Poland after the First World War, stows away on a tramp ship and escapes to America. His resilience and razor-sharp brain places him above the rank and file. After the outbreak of the Second World War he sails to England to enlist and fight against the Nazis, is captured in North Africa and taken to Italy as a prisoner of war. He escapes, lives and works amongst Italian patriots until he is recognised, and immediately escapes for a second time. He eventually returns to England and after the war becomes a billionaire through successful commercial enterprises. With the collapse of the stock markets he finds himself in deep financial trouble. To avoid inevitable bankruptcy and criminal proceedings, he devises a means of escape by using a look-alike. He mysteriously disappears from his luxurious, ocean-going yacht m the early hours of the morning while cruising on the Atlantic Ocean in an area renowned for strong currents, and the look-alike’s body is left floating in that area.
