It's 1794, the height of the French Revolution. Charles Hayden sets
off aboard the ill-fated HMS Themis with orders to destroy a French
frigate sailing from Le Havre and to gather intelligence from a
royalist spy. On discovering French plans for an imminent invasion
of England, Hayden must return to Portsmouth to give warning before
it's too late. But the enemy have been lying in wait for him, and
so begins a dangerous chase out into the Atlantic and into the
clutches of a powerful French squadron. After a failed attempt to
masquerade as French sailors, Hayden and his officers are taken
prisoner. A shipwreck following a storm and a case of mistaken
identity befall Hayden and his men as they try in desperation to
escape in order to warn the Lords of the Admiralty. Failure will
mean the invasion of England - and the guillotine for Hayden.
