Synopsis A young Geordie copper Harry escapes war-ravaged post-war Britain in search of new opportunities and adventure. He gets lucky, is recruited by Hong Kong Police Force, and enjoys the trappings of an expatriate lifestyle. In the hot and sweaty, smoked-filled bars of Tsim Sha Tsui, he meets an attractive and vivacious Chinese dancing girl called Vicky, who escapes post-war China and Communists in search of freedom, a new life and love.

Harry and Vicky fall in love and marry, producing a boy and a girl. However, their past catches up on them and eats away their love, only to end in disaster. In the end, Vicky is accused of but cleared of her husband’s murder.

Vicky and her three children are given a second chance to start a new life in London, UK, surviving as a single parent in the difficult times of the early 1970s.
