They need him to break secret codes the Russians are using. It is top secret work and John can’t tell anyone about it. He helps the Pentagon to track smuggled nuclear arms.

One of his students is a beautiful and opinionated young physics major named Alicia. They soon marry and John continues his secret work. John shows signs of paranoia believing that he is being followed and that his life is in danger. Alicia calls in a psychiatrist who tries to help John determine what is fact and what is fiction.
