In 1950s London racial hostility to Commonweath immigrants is openly paraded. A pregnant woman, initially assumed to be white, is murdered. As two detectives start to investigate, and discover her racial origins were much more mixed, public prejudices and those of the officers themselves are exposed.

Q&A with cast member Earl Cameron after the screening.
