Region 6

What if the Allies had lost?

by

Introducing Region 6, a dystopian thriller interwoven with a love story between two repressed gay men from either side of the political divide. Set between 1983 and 1993 in a post-war Britain that has unconditionally surrendered to the Nazis and is now known as Region 6, the population is divided. On one side: the British collaborators, who, alongside German expatriates, have prospered under the occupation. On the other: the less fortunate, those with inferior bloodlines for instance, who endure a harsh existence working in sweatshops or on state farms. 

Against this broken backdrop, the story follows the lives of two characters from different social backgrounds – Thomas Jordan and Stephen Talbot. Thomas was born into a working-class family in the East End, categorised as a low-risk inferior bloodline, due to distant Jewish heritage. Thomas eventually becomes a key figure in the resistance movement. 

Meanwhile, Stephen, a recent join to the Gestapo, is assigned to a mission to cross London’s dividing wall to seduce Thomas, whom the Gestapo believe is a closeted homosexual. It is hoped this will allow Stephen access to information held by Thomas and the resistance about a possible US-led invasion of Great Britain. Stephen succeeds in his task, but when his Gestapo superiors order him to kill Thomas, he is torn – should he remain loyal to the regime or will love conquer all?
