It is an adventure film about the Soviet Union’s attempts to organise a world proletarian revolution. The Soviet embassy in England sends two couriers with diplomatic mail to Leningrad (now – Saint-Petersburg). The inspector of security police, White, and a group of policemen attack the Soviet diplomatic couriers at night. One of the couriers is killed in the unequal battle, the second one is heavily injured and falls out of the train. The documents get to an English trackman, who gives them to his son, a sailor in Portsmouth; a steamship is about to depart for Leningrad from that city. Police officers find out that the English steamship hides the Soviet diplomatic mail but cannot catch the package. Risking their lives, sailors deliver the mail to Leningrad.
