Tom Murray and his new bride's wedding day takes a turn for the worse when a mysterious woman arrives uninvited with a startling revelation - she claims to be Tom's wife. Annette is a French woman who Tom had a wartime romance with at the end of the Second World War after he was injured near Normandy and she nursed him back to health. It is then that Annette claims the marriage took place, something Tom has no memory of. She is willing to divorce Tom but only with a £10,000 settlement. Blackmailed and with his promising medical career in the balance should the story reach the papers, Tom must hunt down the facts to determine if Annette is really telling the truth.
