Roman Catholic priest Father Elliott goes to the Natural History Museum to meet a section-head in the wartime British Special Operations Executive. On accepting his offer to train for covert operations behind enemy lines in Belgium, he meets a disparate group of existing recruits, including Michèle, a Belgian émigrée, whose sweetheart has died in the occupation of Belgium; Emile, who misses his family; and Julie, who flirts with Father Elliott, despite his celibate status. Michèle's motives are initially questioned before she is finally given the green light for operations abroad. On completion of their training, Father Elliott and Julie are parachuted into Belgium, briefed to destroy a Nazi records office in Brussels and to spring prominent SOE agent Andrew from custody.
