"Power is not destroying something. That's just destroying something."  

Flic, Becca and Max each have their own motives for squatting a mansion in London; Flic wants to defy society's constraints, Becca goes where the party is and Max… well, he keeps his reasons close to his chest. But the rot has set in and then Max brings home an unwelcome guest; a fat cat city banker who represents all that they despise and all that they want to destroy. And, just maybe, they will.
