Sean Connery is Johnson, a hard-boiled British police detective who is overwhelmed by a child molestation case. His reaction during the interrogation is to kill the suspect, and he is suspended. He eventually emotionally completely falls apart, and it is hinted that his violent reaction to the suspect was due to his latent tendencies as a pedophile.
