Small-time hood Pinkie Brown (Riley) woos and marries waitress Rose (Riseborough) in order to keep her quiet about two murders she knows he's committed. Director Joffe's bold adaptation more than holds its own against the 1947 version.

After murdering rival gang member Fred Hale, Pinkie Brown decides to marry Rose - the only person who can prove he was behind the murder. However, he is up against Hale's sister and Rose's boss Ida Arnold, who turns detective to discover who is behind her brother's demise.
