Gangland London 1961: King Duncan's attempt to expand his influence by buying The Cawdor Arms has ended in near-disaster. His lieutenant, Paddy, has been killed in an attack by the local gangs and the pub would have been lost had Paddys wife, Beth, not managed to rally the boys. In a moment of hubris, Duncan appoints her to run the pub. But a throwaway comment by a mocking charlady sets Beth on a path that threatens to shatter the gang and the characters very sense of the world they live in.
