    Sometimes, you don't know what sort of man you are until you are called upon to protect your family. Bethnal Green, East London, 1991. John Sissons is out of work, out of friends, and out of luck. Fortune soon smiles upon him, though, and he gets a job in a door factory. It's not much, but it's something. But as the days go by in the factory, and the layers are peeled away, John realizes he didn't get this job by accident.
