Ruth, heroine of Fly, is besotted by the baker’s boy – Patrick Pennington, working during the holidays from his music course.  Her mother violently disapproves, but Ruth carries on seeing Patrick. He has yet more brushes with the police, and after he hits a policeman, it is certain that he will go to prison, ruining his chances to play with a major orchestra.
