The film opens in Southampton in 1916, where the Britannic has been refitted as a hospital ship for wounded soldiers fighting on the Western Front and elsewhere. Among the nurses who are to serve aboard her is Lady Lewis (Jacqueline Bisset), who is being delivered to Greece via Naples, where her husband has become Ambassador for Great Britain. Travelling with her is Vera Campbell (Amanda Ryan), an operative of British Intelligence posing as Lady Lewis' governesss. Campbell is constantly unnerved by the voyage, having survived the sinking of the RMS Titanic four years previously.
