“There is the everlasting possibility of disobedience, civil disorder, destruction, yes, yes – but the mere whisper or cloud no larger than a man’s hand of revolution in this country is madness”

It is 6th May 1926, the third day of the General Strike.

This is the story of that harrowing week seen through the eyes of the women and men of London as they move through that unreal city. We meet those who gave their all for the strike – and a vision of a better world. We meet, too, those who fought to break it with every weapon they had: power, politics, money – or brute force. There are masters and workmen, fascists and communists, politicians and trade unionists, wives and mistresses, artists, writers and scientists, all caught up in the web of each other’s lives. But above all we follow the thread of Hervey Russell’s life as she is swept up by the political ferment around her, by the difficulties of a new marriage, and by her hopes and fears for the future…
