An electrifying, bittersweet love story with echoes of Romeo and Juliet, set in a society divided by racial bigotry and a world rocked by terrorism.

Adapted from Malorie Blackman's best-selling novels. Sephy (a Cross) is the daughter of the Deputy Prime Minister.

Callum is the son of a Nought agitator.

'I wanted to turn society as we know it on its head, with new names for the major divisions, i.e.
