Drama. At the end of the Second World War, a British intelligence officer must persuade a kidnapped German scientist to work with the British RAF to develop the jet engine.

It is the end of the Second World War and Lotte and her father Dieter, a recently captured German scientist, arrive in England. Captain Callum Ferguson, an intelligence officer, is assigned the task of courting Dieter into working with the British RAF to develop the jet engine. With the emerging Cold War, it is crucial for British national security that cutting-edge technology is made available to the armed forces as quickly as possible.
