Guy Hamilton directs this classic British drama. Former army officer Wolf Merton (Jack Hawkins) has lost touch with the men he commanded during the war. Now working as a stockbroker in London, Wolf returns home one night to find an intruder inside his house. Wolf quickly recognises the man as being Ginger Edwards (Michael Medwin), a man who was once part of his platoon. Can Wolf help Ginger return to a more honourable way of living?
