Soon after the end of World War II, a professor sees a painting in a London gallery that looks exactly like his missing daughter, Hildegarde (Mai Zetterling). Maj. Lawrence (Guy Rolfe) is the British army officer assigned to find her, though it's easier said then done. He finally locates her in a German refugee camp but quickly realizes she suffers from amnesia. Her safe return home is complicated by a Nazi war criminal (Robert Beatty) who has been hiding out with Hildegarde's unwitting help.
