In Performance, Chas (James Fox) is a "performer," an ultra-violent enforcer for an East London gang (lead by Harry Flowers (Johnny Shannon). Chas begins to enjoy his work a little too much, culminating in the murder of an associate. He goes on the run, both from the police and from his former colleagues. Chas finds himself "a perfect little hidey hole" in the basement of a house owned by a reclusive, eccentric rock star named Turner (Mick Jagger) who lives there with his female friends Pherber (Anita Pallenberg) and Lucy (Michele Breton). Chas and Turner are initially repelled by each other, but come to see that the worlds of the rock star and the gangster are not as different as they first appear.
