London, 1954. Morris Grimace works for The Ministry, keeping Britain safe against the threat of soviet infiltration.

However, all is not what it seems. Despite being married with chidldren, Morris is having a torrid affair, meeting his beloved Betty in little used parts of the underground. So when a group of pick pockets take the letter from him; then kidnap Betty, who then reveals herself to be a Russian spy, the whole world looks like it’s going to collapse around Morris’s ears.
