In this drama a Canadian journalist heads for Hungary to do a story when he meets a man who asks him to bring a package containing "medicine" for his niece. The reporter agrees but accidently loses the niece's phone number. He decides to have the message of the packet's arrival broadcast on the radio. He is approached by someone claiming to be the one the package is meant for. Soon the journalist finds that the package has two passports that would have helped a scientist get to Austria. The "recipient" of the package turns out to be a police spy. So was the man who gave him the package. They two agents had planned to arrest the Canadian as a spy too, and use him as a bartering chip for the Americans. They would trade him, for one of their agents. Fortunately, the courageous Canadian disarms a border guard and escapes to Austria with the scientist.
