In 1840, Hatty Clifton is abducted by a pair of swindlers, the Rackhams, while visiting London with her parents.

Hatty’s attempts to escape are proving unsuccessful, and when she gets badly injured on the high wire the Rackhams refuse to get medical attention for her. However, Hatty manages to get the doctor in, who begins to suspect what’s going on. He starts making enquiries with the police and Hatty’s parents.
