SYNOPSIS – Operation Bernhard was the codename of a secret Nazi plan to flood the British economy with counterfeit Bank of England currency during World War Two. When a U-boat containing the notes was scuttled off the coast of Ireland at the end of the war, only a handful of people knew of its whereabouts. One of these men was a welder at Harland & Wolff Shipyard in Belfast. Davy Gordon gathers a motley crew and mounts a clandestine adventure over the border in search of their fortune.
