    Synopsis: 

    In the aftermath of a bloody and brutal civil war, England stands at a crossroads as food shortages, economic instability and a corrupt political system threaten to plunge the country into darkness and despair.

    The Parliament men who fought against the tyranny of the king now argue for stability and compromise, but the people are hungry for change. For a brief moment, a group of rebels, preachers, soldiers and dissenters dare to imagine an age of hope, a new Jerusalem in which freedom will be restored to the land.
