Adam Faith is a teenage tearaway accused of killing a policeman, but he never done it, honest. Anne Baxter is his lawyer's shrink girlfriend (or so we think), determined to find out the truth. Plot twists will keep you glued. But listen carefully, as Faith talks in a rapid Cockney mumble, and both Baxter and Sinden have this annoying habit of constantly dropping their voices to a whisper. Nothing and nobody is quite what they seem. Sinden at one point accuses Baxter of 'morbid femininism' (sic). Sexual relationships of all kinds are treated surprisingly realistically, and the UK prime minister's father in law is not bad in a small part.
