An innocent man is inadvertently caught up in a police raid at a left wing youth centre and is shot in the head. When he regains consciousness in hospital, he has lost his memory and physical co-ordination. After a long physical and mental struggle he partially recovers the use of his faculties and his former identity as a biogeneticist. As he sets out to unravel the events around his shooting he finds he has become the victim of trumped-up charges of terrorism and murder laid by the police in an attempt to cover up their own mistake.
