Williams returns to his boyhood village in Wales in the hope of buying out the entire district for use in a water-reservoir project. This is his own revenge against the village which had him exiled as a thief. Due to resistance from Evans, he fails at his land deal, so he tries to burn

the village down. He is stopped by Burton and killed in a fight. Evans then floods the village herself to conceal Williams' body, protecting her stepson, Burton. The story is well developed, with even and subtle direction. The cast are equally effective in their portrayals of modest Welsh

villagers. This was stage actor Burton's first feature film (it also resulted in his first marriage; he met his first wife, Welsh actress Sybil Williams, on the set), and one of his first acting jobs since returning from WW II service in the Royal Air Force as a navigator.
