Watts shares air with Darth Vader himself – or, alright, James Earl Jones. He’s an old clockmaker who suffers racism attacks in the 1940s. When one of his hecklers turns up deader than a dodo, the clockmaker is put on trial for murder.
But the case gets really interesting when family man David Parkin (Kevin Kilner) comes forward and admits to having committed the crime himself in defence.
A still-dark-haired Watts merely adds eye candy support as Parkin's young wife.
