After serving seven years in prison, the smalltime criminal George is released. He seeks out his daughter, but his ex-wife does not allow him to talk to her. His friend Thomas meets George and gives his Jaguar that he kept for him. George is impressed with the changing in the neighborhood, while Thomas explains the new reality. George is hired by his former boss Mortwell to work as the driver and bodyguard of the high-class call girl Simone. In the beginning, George is a misfit for the position, and does not get along with Simone, but gradually he befriends and falls in unrequited love with her. Simone looks for someone on the streets of the King's Cross district (red light district of London in the 1980s) and soon she asks George to help her to find the prostitute Cathy. George is involved with the underworld of prostitution and is chased by the dangerous pimp Anderson. When he finds Cathy, he discovers the connection of Simone to her.
