John and Bill are two mates living on a shoestring. Both unemployed, they use all their dole money to drink and gamble. Their only passion is greyhound racing. One evening, at the track, once again out of luck, they meet Silver, a shadowy racing personality who offers them to race one of his dogs, a bitch named Silent Partner. John and Bill naively seize this opportunity to fulfil their dream and make money. But things turn out not quite the way they expected, and the two men will lose not only their illusions, but also their friendship.
