Bob Johns (Nigel Havers) is a pleasant, affable, young man. An excellent linguist, he works at GCHQ Cheltenham, the British Government's information-gathering service as a translator in the Russian Section. However Bob has become increasingly dissatisfied with his work, following the publicity surrounding the recent trial of Dodgson, a GCHQ employee found guilty of spying for the Russians.

Bob plans a party at the house he shares with 2 other GCHQ employees, to celebrate his birthday and will introduce Cynthia and her daughter to his father, Frank Jones (Michael Caine). Frank is an ordinary man - he served in the Fleet Air Arm during the Korean War and now a widower, runs a modestly successful business. He's very proud of Bob, his only child. Everyone at the party is unaware that all their movements and conversations are being monitored, as British Intelligence has identified Bob as a possible suspect.
