An eager and idealistic young attorney defends an Alcatraz prisoner accused of murdering a fellow inmate. The extenuating circumstances: his client had just spent over three years in solitary confinement.
Powerful, simple drama with no sentimentality whatsoever.
A troubled boy from the big city goes to live with his Welsh hill farmer uncle ( Gareth Thomas) , partly to escape trouble back home. The initial mutual hostility gives way to grudging respect on both sides, but external forces have other plans for both of them. Essentially a two-hander, but with superb performances from all the cast.
