Synopsis

Alan Strang (Peter Firth) is a troubled teenager who suffers from an uncontrollable urge to blind horses. As he faces prosecution, psychiatrist Dr Martin Dysart (Richard Burton) is called in by the court to explain the boy's actions, and it soon transpires that Alan's relationship with his devout mother (Joan Plowright) lies at the root of the problem. Adapted by Peter Shaffer from his own play.
