The setting is a small hospital in the British countryside in July 1944. As the German V-1 are regularly falling down and exploding all around the hospital, a stressed out medical crew is operating day and night. Joseph Higgins, the local postman, has just been brought in and sent into the operating room. He will die, without any good reason, while being anesthetized. The same night, one of the nurses who was present when Higgins died, Nurse Bates, tells everyone that she knows that Higgins was murdered and that she can proove it. Later, Nurse Bates is killed in the operating room as she was trying to recover the proof she mentioned.

Scotland Yard inspector Cockrill arrives and starts to investigates about those murders. There are five suspects, Doctor Eden, a womanizer, Dr. Barnes, the anesthesiologist, and three nurses, Linley, Sanson and Woods. Nurse Linley is hesitating to break up with Barnes while Eden is trying to seduce her. Two days later, someone tries to gas Nurse Linley after she has told to the other suspects that she intends to tell inspector Cockrill something important about the night of Higgins's death. Although Linley is already recovering in another room, Cockrill lies to the medical staff and anoounces to them that their colleague is suffering from a skull fracture that needs an immediate operation. Inspector Cockrill is sure he will find out who's the murderer during the moments preceding the operation. Produced, co-written and directed by Sidney Gilliat in 1946.
