Stratford Johns plays the title role of Brond, the menacing mastermind behind the Scottish liberation army. John Hannah stars as Robert, a Glasgow University student drawn into the web of political intrigue.
Robert is the sole witness to the murder of a small boy. That same evening he encounters the assailant, Brond, at a party hosted by his professor. Brond is introduced as an old friend by Professor Gracemont, which stops a perplexed Robert from exposing him.
Margaret (Louise Beattie), a fellow student who Robert is keen on, asks him to keep a parcel safe for Brond. Despite Robert’s desperate efforts to get rid of it, he and the mysterious package are taken to Brond.
Brond appears to take a keen interest in him and, against his will, Robert is pulled into a succession of violent and horrifying events.
A tale of evil and exploitation in the nightmarish landscape of a Glasgow where nothing is as it seems.
