When Roy goes to the Community Resource Centre for resettlement assistance, he meets the manager, Angela Trotman – the Police Commissioner’s daughter. Roy develops a relationship with Angela, but cannot be truthful about his life. As the public becomes increasingly concerned with rising crime and lay blame on deportees, a local policeman, Inspector Rock, keeps a close eye on Roy.

Roy links up with Wally, an old friend who takes him in and agrees to help him get back to the U.S. Glamour Kid, a local Don will provide illegal travel documents for $10, 000. The men turn to illicit schemes to raise money when a jeweler is killed during a robbery.
