A Lesser Evil

Bristol, the 1960s, and young Fifi Brown defies her parents to marry a man they think is beneath her ...

The infamous Muckles from number 11 terrorize the neighbourhood and scandalize the street with rumours of criminal depravity. When Fifi tries to help the Muckles' youngest child, she risks not only her marriage and her family but the lives of all the inhabitants of Dale Street . ..
