Alcoholic ex-cop Jim Naiboth (Stacey Keach) is one drink away from oblivion, when local gangster Vic abducts his ex-wife and her daughter. In a world as dark and unstable as his favourite port, the question is whether Naiboth can survive his addiction, never mind rescue the family. An American New Wave film in all but location, this is British crime cinema at its most pungent.
