In Tiger Bay, Gille Jenkins, a 12 year old tomboy and compulsive liar living in a sordid tenement with her single parent mother, witnesses the murder of an immigrant Polish woman living in an nearby apartment. Korchinsky returned to Cardiff after being abroad for some months to discover his estranged fiance had been unfaithful in his absence. In a moment of anger, he shoots her dead in her apartment.

Gillie is a young girl who likes playing pranks as part of her good-hearted but cheeky nature. During the entire film, it seems she can never quit understand or appreciate the devastation of the murder she has witnessed. As an example of her cheekiness, she takes the hidden gun and ammunition to show off to her fellow choristers at a church-wedding!

The young merchant marine becomes distraught when he discovers that she has become the mistress of a married British sports announcer and shoots her with her own gun. Gillie lies about the circumstances in order to keep the gun which she discovers where Korchinsky hid it. She ultimately bonds with him and misleads the police in their investigation.
