The Leap into Sunlight
Despite his being an alcoholic with no relevant experience, the thirty-three-year-old Archie obtains employment as caretaker for two tenement blocks in south London. The vicious treatment of the tenants by the scheming landlord and his thugs erodes the hope the fatalistic Archie has for the steadying of his chaotic life. Yet he is drawn to something in the basement at Earl Towers, something he has been told he is not ready to see - a unique work of art being created by an enigmatic artist, which seems to hold the answer to Archie's abstract longing for salvation and release from the haunting taunts of his deceased, bigoted father.
