Summary Albert Kemp is a lonely widower, whose only son was killed in the war. Now, in 1953, he is working in a pub by the railway arches. Downstairs is a tradtional bar, upstairs is a famous boxing gym. It is here that Albert brings Danny, a fatherless boy who he rescues from a gang on the streets. But as Danny begins to grow into a champion, the predators start to circle, luring him with glittering promises back into a life of crime in the corrupt world of match fixing. Will Danny listen to his wise old mentor? Or will the prospects of fame and money be too tempting?
