In the totalitarian state of Oceania, a lowly outer party functionary, Winston Smith (John Hurt), toils at his job rewriting bits of history, while secretly nurturing his own petty rebellion against conformism. There's no escaping the ever-present Viewscreens installed in every room, that allow the thought-police to watch every citizen - hence the sinister motto, Big Brother is Watching You. With a female co-rebel named Julia (Suzanna Hamilton), Winston finds a rented room without a Viewscreen. They meet there for forbidden sex, and wonder if there really is a resistance movement somewhere, that they might join. As Thought Criminals like themselves are always caught, Julia and Winston consider themselves doomed, but swear to retain their human dignity by never betraying one another. Unfortunately, Smith's inner party contact O'Brien (Richard Burton) turns out to be his inquisitor, and he knows exactly how to crush Winston's will.
