As Melbourne endures some of the planet’s longest pandemic lockdowns, three disconnected lives spiral toward intersecting turmoil. Family man John Clark fights to hold career and relationships intact while opinionated libertarian Jimmy Bulwark rages alone against heavy-handed government restraints. By chance these childhood acquaintances reunite just as forthright executive Nicky Chan gets callously downsized.

United in outrage over Nicky’s mistreatment, John and Jimmy impulsively intervene despite clashing worldviews that once kept them estranged. But social tensions run high and resources grow scarce as the crisis persists year after chaotic year. Personal principles get tested as the trio bonds through tribulation, forced to reconsider their stances on virus safety versus freedom and civil duty.

Follow the tumultuous trajectories of three complex personalities as isolating upheaval strains relationships and erodes security. With compassion and humour, this revealing drama bears witness to everyday people persevering through a surreal epoch of ominous viral threats, social polarization, economic devastation, and uncertainty plaguing our planet.

Born in the UK, Calvin has worked in financial services for over 20 years, living in both London and Sydney before settling in Melbourne. The experience of Covid lockdowns throughout 2020 not only gifted him the time and space to start writing, but it also inspired him to overcome the fear of that first blank page. Calvin has a 1st Class Honours Degree in Psychology and his interest in human behaviour and the psyche informs this story. Calvin is married to Amy and has two children.
