Serving in the British Army in Northern Ireland, Joseph shot and killed a man. A subsequent inquiry has cleared him of any inappropriate behaviour, yet, now returned to civilian life, he remains haunted by the experience. Working as a painter and decorator in London he meets Alice, and through her, her grandfather David, himself a veteran of the armed forces. In the 50s, David served in the RAF in Kenya, where unbeknown to his grand-daughter, he bombed Mau-Mau jungle hide-outs. In all probability, and equally in the course of duty, he too has blood on his hands. As soldier and pilot, both Joseph and he are innocent; as men, both, perhaps, are guilty. This is a powerful exploration of guilt, war and the power of mankind's greatest yet all too frequently broken taboo, 'Thou shalt not kill'.
