In Perforce at the forty-fifth year of life died a member of the local Council, Barry Fairbrother. This event threw the residents into shock. In a provincial English town with cobbled market square and an ancient monastery, it would seem that reigns idyll, but is it really? What is behind the beautiful English facades? In fact, the quiet town has long been in a state of war.
The rich clash with the poor, teenagers with parents, wives with husbands, teachers with students... Pigford is not what it seems at first glance. And the vacant seat in the local Council only intensifies all these conflicts that threatens to lead to such a war, which has not seen a small town. Who will be able to win the election with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?
