Hotel night porter Pine is contacted by an intelligence operative who asks for his assistance to spy on international businessman Richard Roper.

Pine attempts to infiltrate Roper’s inner circle by becoming a felon himself, while keeping his mission a secret from his hotel colleagues and girlfriend.
