Description

Britain, 1930s. Tony Cox, out-of-work, finds himself swept up in a wave of right-wing activism - mass rallies, charismatic leadership and public violence. Rising through the ranks of the British Union of Fascists, he is interned at the outbreak of the Second World War. Upon his release, Tony reinvents himself, burying his history from everyone, including the one person who truly loves him: his grandson. But when a violent secret from the past emerges, Tony's world is brought crashing down around him.


Britain, 1990s. David Coxon-Dyet looks up to Tony. He knows nothing about his secret past, but as his personal life collapses and David is faced with redundancy and economic insecurity, the terrible truth about his grandfather is revealed.



Betrayed by the actions of others, both grandfather and grandson take extreme measures to wrest back control. For these men in the street the consequences are profound.
