It is 1918; the Kaiser's empire is about to fall, and Captain Harry Phillips, a prisoner of war in a Romanian hospital, has had a very hard time of it. Then, out of the blue, comes an offer he can't refuse - a ticket home to his beloved England and to the arms of his much-missed fiancée Elizabeth. But the ticket comes with a heavy price: Harry must marry beautiful, headstrong Princess Irena of Moldova, whose only hope of survival is to leave the country. He is forced to risk both their lives by escorting her back to England, and they set off on a long and treacherous journey, with enemies at every turn.
