Peter returns home to poverty in Newcastle, from active service in Northern Ireland. He has been horribly injured, and his relationship with his wife and friends deteriorates. His status as the outsider allows him to see the corruption of everyday existence, but he is unable to salvage any dignity from his situation. 'Gristle' is based on Ernst Toller's 'Hinkerman', which deals with the impact of war on ordinary people's lives.
