Plot Summary

British Army deserter Peter Burden (Derek Farr), perpetually on the run in postwar England, one day finds himself in a pawnshop. When armed men suddenly burst in and rob the store -- assaulting the owner and killing a police officer -- Burden is mistakenly pegged as the criminal. Knowing he is innocent yet under suspicion as a deserter, Burden finds refuge at the home of attractive war widow Jean Adams (Joan Hopkins), who offers to help clear his name.
