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.
