David lives in a London created by the bank bailouts and the credit squeeze. The cities are battlegrounds, those with jobs fight those without and the young fight the old. Fear hangs in the air like a fog, and violence is a way of life. If outside is bad, then inside is worse, forced to share with the tattooed and pierced squatters. He has to get out. All he has to do is find a way past the armed guards, the landmines and the heavy machine guns at the border.
