During the Hungarian Revolution, a British woman must consider a moral dilemma to find safe passage to Austria. At the border, a Russian soldier discovers that Lady Ashmore is trying to smuggle her Hungarian lover, a resistance fighter, out of the country. He will grant their crossing, as well as her other traveling companions, if she has sex with him.
