Film details


Bill Nash, a young man who was brought up in care, is picked on at his job in a factory. Stuart Grady, the foreman, takes him under his wing. When Bill is locked out of his home, Grady takes him back to his flat. The next day, Grady's landlady comes to collect the rent, assumes the two are lovers, and threatens to throw them out. Bill stabs her, Grady finishes her off, and they dispose of the body in the basement. The landlady's husband returns home finds the body, and calls the police. Fitz at first believes the husband is guilty, and Bill and Grady go on the run. They come across Bill's foster family, and follow them home. The family calls his social worker, and when he confronts the two of them, Bill reacts violently.
