Michael Roemer's deadpan masterpiece did not receive a theatrical release for twenty years, but was acclaimed by British critics at its 1989 premier. Harry (Martin Priest) is a former racketeer who discovers, upon being released from prison, that his business has been taken over by the mob. Not only that, but the taxman is after him, he has a daughter whose existence he was previously unaware of, and his sister wants to mother him. Despite his bemusement at his new circumstances, Harry makes an effort to redeem himself by leading a quiet, ordinary existence.
