Two adventurous Glasgow boys – Mick Fairbairn (Frazer Hines) and Archie Almond (Andrew Irvine) – discover they have a new neighbour, Captain Gaunt.

Gaunt (Michael Balfour) is an American naval officer who has come to Glasgow seeking a former member of his crew from an ill-fated mission off American shores ten years ago.

Gaunt’s daughter, Lindy (Sandra Walden) befriends the boys and enlists their help in tracking down the seaman who disobeyed Gaunt’s orders and caused a collision that foggy night.

As might be expected, their hunt takes some unexpected twists.
