World DVD and Blu-ray premiere of 'lost' film from underground director Andy Milligan, mastered from the only surviving print under the supervision of Milligan fanatic Nicolas Winding Refn (director of Bronson and Drive).

While living rough on the streets of London's East End, a young man, Dink (Milligan regular Berwick Kaler - Coronation Street, Red Riding), encounters the beautiful and mysterious Dee (Julie Shaw - The Big Switch). Concerned for Dink's welfare, she invites him to stay with her and get off the streets. The two soon develop a curious relationship which oscillates, often without warning, between sexual intimacy and raging jealousy. As tenderness gives way to cruelty, they become consumed by darkness and their relationship spirals out of control. Includes Milligan's The Body Beneath as an extra.
