M.A.D.

Sold out

At the height of the cold war M.A.D. stood for Mutually Assured Destruction; for 11-year-old John it meant Mum and Dad.

In the aftermath of the broadcast of the terrifying post-apocalyptic TV drama 'Threads' and nearly twenty years later, M.A.D. is a family drama which follows the lives of a struggling market trader, his frustrated wife and their boy as their whole world appears to be coming to an end. In a world full of cold war paranoia, David tenderly explores the gap between the lifestyles and aspirations of parents and son over the years, and the love that both draws them together and rips them apart.
