Mrs Johnstone, deserted by her husband and with a houseful of kids to feed, learns she is expecting twins, whom she cannot possibly afford to keep. She chars for childless Mrs Lyons who, learning of her plight, begs one of her twins from her at birth. The two boys grow up streets apart, never learning the truth but becoming fast friends (and in love with the same girl) despite their differing backgrounds. The brothers lives begin to differ as they become adults, Mickey Johnstone marries the girl, loses his job, turns to crime and becomes dependant on tranquillisers. Edward Lyons prospers, goes to university and turns Councillor. But a Narrator, intruding like Fate, warns that a ‘price has to be paid’, fulfilling the prophecy that twins parted at birth will die on the day they find out their heritage.
