Robert Shaw as Aston

Aston, a quiet, reserved man, lives alone in a top-floor cluttered room of a small abandoned house in a poor London district. He befriends and takes in MacDavies, an old derelict who has been fired from a menial job in a café. In time, Aston offers him a job as caretaker of the house.

 

Aston's brother, Mick, a taunting sadist, harasses the derelict when his brother is away, countermanding his orders. Eventually, Aston, irritated by the cantankerous old man, puts him out.
