Grim thriller about a Falklands War hero (Washington) who returns to the East End after his term in the army until to find his old community blighted by poverty, racism and crime, and his work prospects are dashed when the Thatcher government's changes to the nationality laws rob him of British citizenship. It's all downhill from there. Notable early starring role for Washington, and an acidic (if eventually melodramatic) picture of life for the underclass in Thatcher's Britain.
