Spying on the Confederacy in the American civil war
British spy Captain Samuel Trego claims that he wants the Confederacy to win the American civil war – but is he lying?
He tries to persuade an aristocratic Englishwoman to help him but she is bitterly opposed to the war despite being married to a fanatical Confederate officer.
She is suspicious of him, and so is her overseer, a freed Negro slave.
When she refuses to help he unleashes a series of terrifying events to try to persuade her.
