Hidden away in the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of
Truth, Winston Smith skilfully rewrites the past to suit the needs
of the Party. Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world
he lives in, which demands absolute obedience and controls him
through the all-seeing telescreens and the watchful eye of Big
Brother, symbolic head of the Party. In his longing for truth and
liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow-worker
Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal.
