Set amidst the backdrop of working class London, John Mills stars as a craftsman, Jacko, working in a factory. A union member, he is considered by the multi-racial workforce to be their representative. Trouble arises when a Jamaican, Gabe, is nominated for a higher position within the factory. Jacko backs this, standing against the racial prejudice that pervades the attitudes of many of the white workers. Gabe successfully gets the job and dashes off to tell his wife. Meanwhile Jacko goes home to find that his daughter is planning an inter-racial marriage. This is the true test of his beliefs, but all the while there is trouble brewing in the streets...
