In the years immediately after World War II, a Dutchman, ex resistance, is sentenced to life imprisonment for a murder, committed during a robbery, that he confessed to but did not commit. After discovering that the girl he has loved since childhood is not dead, as he had been told, he escapes from prison and goes on the run through a devastated Germany in search of the witnesses who can clear him, with her help. But the witnesses begin to die apparently accidental deaths shortly before he finds them...


Critical reception

The New York Times wrote, "the sum and substance of this a great deal of panting exercise within and all over two cities, offering little about which to care"[2] whereas TV Guide found it "quite suspenseful, with Bogarde turning in an exceptionally fine performance."[3]
