Winston Smith rewrites history for the Ministry of Truth, but when he is handed a note that says simply ‘I love you,’ by a woman he hardly knows, he decides to risk everything in a search for real truth. In a world of cheap entertainment, where a war without end is always fought and the government is always watching, can Winston possibly hold onto what he feels inside?
