It’s just after World War II and a number of Nazis have been tracked down to Brazil. A US spy, T. R Devlin, (Cary Grant) persuades Alicia Huberman (Ingrid Bergman), the American daughter of a convicted Nazi criminal, to join them in infiltrating the group so that she can get close to one of the leaders, Alexander Sebastian (Claude Rains), a friend of her father’s.
