When George is faced with Burhampton’s right-wing mafia, the Spatchcockers, and their campaign to close The Golden Tandoori, he knows he can’t act alone. With the help of a Zorro fancy dress costume, he brings to life Fairness Man: a superhero on a mission for social justice. Together they go on an adventure where they grapple with corporate coffee giants, homelessness, council bureaucracy, global warming and religion, as their family look on dismayed.
Will George and Fairness Man thwart the Spatchcockers' plans? Will they reconstruct society through a grassroots movement that marries socialism, performance art and mindfulness into a new ethos for all?
