The Paddington area of London, in July 1949: PC George Dixon, a long-serving traditional "cop" who is due to retire shortly, supervises a new recruit, Andy Mitchell, introducing him to the night beat. Dixon is anachronistic, unprepared and unable to answer the violence of Tom Riley. Called to the scene of a robbery at a local cinema, Dixon finds himself face-to-face with Riley, a desperate youth armed with a revolver. Dixon tries to talk Riley into surrendering the weapon, but Riley panics and fires.
