Good people are struggling to get by, while an organised criminal underclass is thriving.
Days before his repatriation home, American GI Ed Grover pays a visit to a family who had shown a stranger an extraordinary kindness nine years earlier.
The family’s only son, Harry, has disappeared. In a bedsit, Grover finds the body of a young man with his throat cut.
