In this comic thriller, two friends, Tobias Berker and Harry Palmer, enter a contest for the best invention in radio or television broadcasting. By accident, the two invent a spy television that can see through walls and depict whatever lies on the other side on the screen. Trouble ensues when a South American industrialist learns of the invention and will stop at nothing to claim it for himself.
