It is the year 2051 and Britain is a divided country, deliberately divided by economic and education strategies.
Half the population shelters in fortified suburbs (Newtown); the other half resentfully smoulders in sealed-off ghettoes.
This is the story of privileged Zoe and Daz, the semi-literate ghetto dweller, whose brother was executed for raiding with the underground resistance movement.
When Zoe and her friends go slumming one day, she meets Daz - and it's Romeo and Juliet all over again.
But their impossible relationship has far-reaching consequences ...
