Former heroin addict Richard is released after thirteen months in jail. He wants to start a new life without drugs and to leave his criminal past behind him. That is more difficult than he thinks. He broke all links with his family years ago, his friends and acquaintances are all still in the drugs scene and he doesn't have anywhere to live, any money or work. Richard's Freedom pursues Richard from the moment when he is released and the temptations of his safe existence as an addict are close by.
