Synopsis

JobNet was supposed to usher in a better life for unemployed David Mills; instead it plunges him into a bitter struggle for survival when he is caught in the midst of a political conspiracy that pushes Britain to the brink of civil war…

A dystopian glimpse at a future born in an age of austerity and political uncertainty, Citizen Zero is a gripping social satire that exposes our deepest fears, presenting a grave warning to any society that abandons the pursuit of social justice...

After austerity came prosperity and stability, but it was bought at a terrible price...

In a surveillance society blind where it matters most, a deadly conspiracy is ready to strike...

A security operative turned terrorist is ready to bring down the man he once helped to seize power...

Now a dictatorial Prime Minister, confident of his grip on power, is about to discover the limits of his strength...

Welcome to Britain, a nation bitterly divided between rich and poor, as it teeters on the edge of chaos...

Unemployed David Mills is caught in the middle, torn from the woman he loves and thrown in to a terrible struggle to survive…

He’s a ‘zero’, a nobody, one of the destitute millions, but he’s also the one man who might salvage some kind of freedom out of the ruins of the future...

A critical pawn in a deadly power struggle, David has no choice but to fulfil a role he never asked for; no wonder the Prime Minister wants him dead...


Citizen Zero blends the stark social commentary of ‘The Boys From The Blackstuff’, the millennial anarcho-chic of ‘The Matrix’, and the uncompromising force of ‘V for Vendetta’ into one devastating portrayal of tomorrow’s Britain…

The future is what we make it.
