The class system is still the most fundamental defining factor in the life of a UK/Scottish citizen. A quick look around at the profiles of the notables in any field – politics, business, law, culture – shows a predominance of individuals from a background of privilege. This screenplay, set in the early 20th century, intends to dramatize the attempts by one individual to bridge the class divide in order to pursue his dream.
