17 year old Paul Waterford is beginning to see life as a sour business, full of unsolved problems, unhappiness and general stress. His young sister died in an air disaster, his parents' marriage is close to breaking up. So, tired of the world as he sees it, he retreats into the fantasy of an ideal republic, the magnetic centre of his fantasies. But under the pressure of extreme experiences a lot can change in 24 hours.
