The mid-80s. Four bright Oxford students set up a radical group which is commandeered by New Labour to become an ‘alternative think-tank’. As the years go by, its initially idealistic members start pursuing their own goals. One joins the World Bank, one makes a fortune as an Internet pioneer; one becomes an MP... One, always the most uncompromising, goes to help the Palestinian cause and gets killed at Nablus.

Cast : 4M, 3F
