Joseph is an unemployed widower, drinker, and a man crippled by his own volatile temperament and furious anger. Hannah is a Christian worker at a charity shop, a respectable woman who appears wholesome and happy. When the pair is brought together, Hannah appears as Joseph’s potential savior, someone who can temper his fury and offer him warmth, kindness and acceptance. As their story develops Hannah‘s own secrets are revealed-her relationship with husband James is violent and abuse and as events spiral out of control, Joseph becomes her source of succor and comfort. The film explores the theme of middle ages as well as several social issues, including domestic violence, morality in the daily life.
