Explores the meaning of personal responsibility, the hold that the past has over the future and the nature of belief itself. Morning in London, autumn 2011. Across the city, people wake up from an identical, terrifying dream. at the same moment, a young man named John returns home after years away to find economic gloom, ineffective protest, and a Prime Minister about to declare war. But John has a vision for the future and his ideas inspire an increasing number of followers. With conflict looming in the Middle-east, their protest takes them to the centre of the city, to the heart of government, where coincidences, omens and visions collide with political reality. I want you to work out what you long for and go for it with all your talent and all your conviction and don't give a shit if you seem outrageous or stupid, or unfashionable. . . all that's needed, in the end, is belief.
