Set in 1930s Liverpool, England, the life of a seven-year-old Catholic boy named Liam (Burrows) changes after his deeply proud, working class father (Hart) is fired from the local shipyard. To help make ends meet, his sister (Burns) goes to work as a housemaid for the rich Jewish family that owns the shipyard, which only fuels her father's growing bitterness over their poverty and loss of self-respect, leading him to join a group of Fascists that blame the local Jews for their misery. Meanwhile, Liam's mother (Hackett) struggles to keep the family together.
