Stella: When I go out I shall lock you in that room. When I'm in the house you'll be free to walk about.
Kinloch: You regard me as your prisoner?
Stella: Why do you smile?

Sandy Kinloch is the man in the dark. He was left blind as the result of an explosion in the First World War, and he is destitute. He had once been a medical student with an inclination for literature and a promising future, but ill-fortune together with the war, his injuries, and some poor investments, have reduced him to penury. He spends his last few borrowed coins to travel to Ealing on a fog-bound London night to beg some help from a former fellow student, Dr Peter Dunn.
