A neglected teen determined to change his mob ring circumstances gets caught during what he hoped would be his last crime, holding up a used books store that his boss believes to be a front ran by an aging and hardened British immigrant. When the parole officer that has known him and taken pity gives him the vouched parole of working in the place of his robbery, an unexpected relationship develops in the struggling store that opens the two men to forgiveness, trust and companionship.
