This is a sombre examination into the psyche of former London gangster Freddie Foreman: 85 years old, allegedly responsible for multiple murders, and nearing the end of his life. Fred is the only gangster who lived through the turbulent history of the British underworld and survived to tell the tale. Now he lives in a retirement home: alone, estranged from his family, with only the memories of his former crimes to look back on. Lead by a master interview with Freddie and time with him at home, delving deep into his life story to uncover the socio-economic and psychological factors that turned a young South London boy into a ruthless East End criminal - a tragic journey which resonates today.
