Joe Lampton is an ambitious young working class man trying to succeed in post World War II England, when times are hard for everyone. He's ruthless in his desire to get ahead - and when the daughter of a wealthy factory owner falls for him, he realises he could benefit from being the boss's son-in-law. But he's actually attracted to an older French woman he meets at a theatre group. Will his attempts to woo both women lead to his downfall?
