Exterior Set

Television producer Jill Rillington is taping a documentary which will reunite Vic Parks with Douglas Beechey. Seventeen years ago, Douglas inadvertently foiled Vic's last bank robbery, during which Vic shot a teller in the face. Vic, a callous boor, served his time and then exploited his celebrity status to become a wealthy television personality. Douglas married the maimed teller and hero and victim fell into shabby obscurity. Now, at Vic's luxurious Mediterranean villa, Jill's hopes for a fiery confrontation are fading because amiable Douglas shows no envy or bitterness and happy people make rotten telly material. Will Vic ever receive his just deserts?
