In 1941, as Japan prepares to open its war against the USA with a pre-emptive strike on Pearl Harbor, a series of American mistakes threatens to inadvertently aggravate its effectiveness.

There is a door marked "Absolutely no admittance" to a room that contains highly classified decoding equipment. The door even contains a mail slot to pass documents through the door without revealing the room's contents. Several officers go into and out of the room. The door never seems to be locked and the room is unguarded. At one point an officer leaves the door to the room open for several seconds with his back to the room.
