In a story based on George Orwell's classic novel, Winston Smith (John Hurt) is a government employee whose job involves the rewriting ofhistory in a manner that casts his fictional country's leaders in a charitable light. His trysts with Julia (Suzanna Hamilton) provide his only measure of enjoyment, but lawmakers frown on the relationship -- and in this closely monitored society, there is no escape from Big Brother.
