Maurice, a burglar, is released from prison. Almost immediately, but with some reluctance, he commits murder; an act of vengeance for a past wrong.
From then on he descends into a world of moral ambiguity, rife with suspicion and distrust, as he hunts for the betrayer that first put him behind bars.
