being released from prison after 'treatment', Alex finds an unforgiving
society, even though he is now 'cured' from his criminal impulses.
Unable to live at home, he is forced out on the streets.
down-and-out recognizes him. Saving him from the other homeless,
two police officers, who originally were part of Alex's Droogie
crime-circle whom he had betrayed, give him a beating.
from the beating he received, he comes upon the house where he had
earlier broken into to viciously rape a woman and beat a man for
no reason in particular. Whilst he initially does not recognize
him (Alex wore a mask and a long pointy nose during the attack)
the man eventually realizes it is Alex when he sings 'Singing in
the rain' - the song sung while he committed the attacks. Alex is
drugged and, whilst having Beethoven played to him as torture, jumps
from a window as he tries to 'snuff it.' He survives and ends up
this time, attitudes to the mind control he has been through has
led to a policy change in the government and the minister attempts
to ingratiate himself with Alex - Alex is now the victim - the man
whose wife he had killed is 'put away' and no expense spared to
set Alex up for life again...
