It's the midsummer ball at Oxford, and a group of men and women - friends since university days - have gathered under the stars.
Included in this group is David Crimond, a genius and fervent Marxist.
Years earlier the friends had persuaded David to write a philosophical and political book on their behalf.
But opinions and loyalties have changed, and on this summer evening the long-resting ghosts of the past come careering back into the present.
