Henry Faber is a cold and emotionless German sleeper agent nicknamed “the Needle” because he prefers to kill with a stiletto. While spying in England, he obtains critical information about the Allies’ plans for the Invasion of Normandy but is unable to transmit the information. After narrowly escaping British intelligence in London, Faber heads to Scotland for a rendezvous with a German U Boat. But fierce weather strands him on Storm Island. On the island he meets Lucy, her disabled husband, David, their son; and a shepherd named Tom.

A romance develops between Faber and Lucy because of the estrangement she has with her husband after an accident on their honeymoon which left him embittered and physically confined to a wheelchair. David becomes suspicious of Faber when he discovers he is carrying military information. When challenged about the documents, Faber ruthlessly kills David by throwing him off a cliff. Faber lies to Lucy to explain David’s absence, claiming David had been drinking with Tom. However, Lucy finds her husband’s body and decides to flee. When Faber finds her missing, he realises she knows and pursues her. Lucy finds Tom’s dead body. She radios the mainland but is told that help will be sent immediately, but in the meantime, it is vital for her to destroy the island’s radio transmitter.
