The film concerns an elderly couple, who turn out to be a brother and sister left traumatized by the Second World War. As is also revealed, they were involved in the accidental death of a bicycle rider. Instead of reporting the accident, they bring the body home with them.

Of the budget, £6,500 came from Albert Finney's Memorial Enterprises, £6,000 from the BFI (only half of which came from the production board the rest being a grant from the Vivien Leigh Memorial Fund.)
DVD Beaver noted "a slow, meditative film that showcases Scott's ability to quietly and simply tell a story that is macabre, unsettling, and strangely sweet. To be sure, this is a very good film, and after finishing it, I couldn't help but wonder what else Scott might have in him. Even those who find themselves turned off by his post "The Hunger" oeuvre should find themselves pleasantly surprised by this truly wonderful film."
