An Ordinary Life
In the fictional British town of Minstell, the threat of war looms like a dark cloud. A communist dictator threatens war on the west, building missiles on an island off the coast, creating tensions between the leaders and citizens of the country. This story follows the citizens of the town as they try to cope with communist influence, religious fanaticism and the seven sins.
This story is set in a fictional version of the 1960’s, and follows multiple characters who must deal with greed and love, betrayal and revenge, and fear of the unknown future. A television executive must heed threats from communist sympathizers wishing to air programs on his station, an actor is consumed by his cocaine addiction, and his love for a flirty actress and model, while the army general plots to save Britain from the communist dictator’s nuclear war. A televangelist tries to find his truth, all while a strange man appears every so often on television, hijacking the networks to convey an obscure message. All, in the end, will either destroy each other, or destroy themselves.
