Part Two of "The Naked Lady"
In the quiet seaside hotel at Torpoint, on the South Coast, the body of a young woman, Miss Le Roy, has been found hanged. At first, it looks like suicide, but closer investigation reveals that it is a case of murder. Detective Inspector Bill Burroughs is called in, and a clue leads him to a small, London night-club 'The Spiny Lobster', where he meets Sylvia Craig, with whom the murdered girl shared a room. In order to help in his investigations Burroughs suggests that Sylvia should accompany him down to Torpoint...

Narration spoken by John Glen.
This simple yet charming film was shot on the beaches of Rimini, Italy, by a Hungarian painter, an unwilling exile from his own country. In the elaborate sand castles built by the children he remembers the magnificent castles of his homeland and the heritage of their history. And in the violence of the children's game he sees the parallel with the recent tragic events in the country of his birth.
