After a spell in prison three criminals return to recover their loot only to find the place where they have stashed it has been turned into a department store. They take jobs at the store in order to locate the whereabouts of their loot. The three discover that the unscrupulous managers of the store, Shuffle and Cutte, are keen to be accomplices in their plot.
It was made at Twickenham Studios. The film ends with the song Where the Arches Used To Be.
A pair of friends robs from a jewelry shop, and buries their loot in a field out in the country before they get caught. They spend ten years in prison, and when they're let out they go back to the burial ground, only to find out that it's no longer a bucolic pasture but the site of a large department store. Despite that setback, they're still determined to dig up their stash.
