A complex tale of espionage has Henry developing a means by which one can send television transmissions across the continent. He becomes the target of a group of international agents. The secret plans leave Henry's hands and end up on the other side of the globe, but eventually
everything is squared away. The most interesting aspect in this prophetic story is the long-distance romance carried out between Henry and Barrett, the daughter of the scientist's former partner. The film, instead of ending with the familiar "clinch," has the lovers staring into each other's
electronically transmitted eyes.
