This English film examines the state of social programs in Britain during the 1980s through the case of a mentally retarded man who's thrust into the system. Walter (Ian McKellen) works at a factory and lives with his mother (Barbara Jefford) and father. When his parents suddenly die, Walter is abruptly sent to a mental hospital, where he is mistreated. The hospital experience is a disaster, save for June, another mentally retarded patient, who falls in love with Walter.
