None of the characters in this grim little British drama are particularly likable. It is especially true of the protagonist, a ghetto kid who makes his living by robbing old ladies. He despises his mother, and at night dreams that his father, whom he never met, is a millionaire. One day he decides to find him. Along the way, he kills a woman in a small town. He then learns that the village doctor is his father. When the doctor finds out that his son is a killer, he decides the youth must die. Unfortunately, tragedy ensues before that can happen.
