Set in an alternate 1970s on an Earth where Germany won the Second World War and is now occupying England, Peter Ingram (Kenneth More) is the lead writer of a popular soap opera set in Blitz-era London.
Ingram’s life sees little adventure. He knowingly turns a blind eye to the realities of local Nazi rule, opting for the easy life.
After the inclusion of a Jewish character in his television series is met with strong objection, his eyes finally begin to open. And when the woman he loves (Isla Blair) reveals that she was born a Jew, he has a difficult decision to make.
Will Peter join his lover in the Underground resistance or continue to lodge his head firmly in the sand?
