Once a blacksmith, now a famous and respected newspaperman, Valentine Clark knows everyone who is anyone in the racing world. Aged, confused, blind and dying, he harbors a daunting secret he is desperate to be rid of. He makes his last confession to his visiting film-director friend, Thomas Lyon, whom, in his delirium, he mistakes for a priest. Unburdened and at peace, Valentine passes away, yet his legacy remains guarded by Lyon.
Shooting on location in Newmarket, Thomas Lyon is troubled by the old man's secret. Seeking to understand this puzzling revelation, he uncovers an aged, unsolved mystery that he soon finds is very much unforgotten. But as much as he wants to learn more, it seems he already knows too much. Imaginative and decisive though he may be, he will need superhuman courage and extreme cunning to stay alive.
