Sebastian – 1968 | 100 mins | Drama | Colour

Plot Synopsis


Oxford professor Sebastian offers Becky Howard a job in his Secret Service code-breaking department, but when Elsa Shahn leaks information to a left-wing organisation he is forced to resign. The Head of Intelligence asks Sebastian’s help in breaking a new code used by Russian satellites. Becky has meanwhile left the department and Sebastian finally locates her, discovering that she has a child – his son. Playing with the infant, the sound of the baby’s rattle suddenly gives him a vital clue to the new code.
