Paul Flanagan has served an eight-year sentence for his part in a robbery. He has been released, unexpectedly, and renews his contact with his girl friend, Cathy, and his half-brother, Peter Babel, both of whom deserted him in his time of need. Paul Flanagan's aim is to find out the whereabouts of the money from the robbery, which his half-brother has hidden away somewhere, for fear of discovery.


This cinema version of a medieval morality play, ‘Den Spiegel der Salighijt van Elckerlijc’ (Everyman), was filmed in Het Gravensteen, a 13th century castle in the Belgian town of Ghent.
