The film tells the story of Paul Mathry, a man who left Britain for the United States as a child evacuee, and who returns to Liverpool twenty years later. Believing his father, Patrick, had died a war hero, he is shocked to discover he is alive and serving a life sentence in prison for murder. Paul embarks upon his own investigation and finds the true culprit, clearing his father's name.[3]
