Inspired by Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
Terrorism, murder, greed, interracial love and family hostility - and the sight of an educated and elite black ruling class oppressing a white minority with daily humiliating injustices.
The show follows the fortunes of Callum, the son of a dangerous Nought agitator and Sephy, a powerful Cross and daughter of the Prime Minister. Their love shakes family loyalties and ignites a growing political crisis.
Callum is white and from the underclass, while Sephy is black and from the ruling majority.
