In Orwell’s nightmarish dystopian society, Winston Smith is employed in the Ministry of Truth.
His job is to help constantly falsify history, so that the almighty Party – personified by the omniscient Big Brother – is always seen as infallible and all-powerful. But when he’s handed a note that says ‘I love you’ by a woman he hardly knows, Winston decides to risk everything to discover the truth about the way that his society is secretly manipulated and controlled. In a world where the government surveys every move the population makes, can Winston possibly hold onto what he feels inside? Or will he renounce everything, surrender to the will of the Party and learn to love Big Brother?
