In 1943, the United Kingdom was plunged into the depths of the Second World War. Lieutenant Colonel Ewen Montagu, a Jewish lawyer, stays in England, while his wife Iris and their children go to the safe haven of the United States. Montagu takes a break from practicing law when he is appointed to the Committee of Twenty. His loyal secretary, Hester Leggett, comes with him. Winston Churchill promised the United States that the Allies would occupy Sicily by July of that year to advance further north into Europe. However, Sicily is seen as a clear target and can be defended by the Wehrmacht. Admiral Godfrey informs the Committee of Twenty that Britain must convince Nazi Germany that the Allies will invade Greece. Charles Cholmondeley proposes an operation from the Trout Memo, which contains fake secrets and a corpse washed up on the shore. Despite Godfrey's suspicions, he allows Montagu and Cholmondeley to plan the operation with Lieutenant Colonel Ian Fleming.
