Synopsis

In 2014, ex marine and mercenary Albert Crowther has a vision to set up a floating island: a modern day Ark! He said he had had enough of 'those political fat cat bastards with their taxes, rules and regulations!' He was sick of ever increasing violence, shootings, stabbings, drug and alcohol abuse on Britain's streets. He convinced his long suffering wife Amy that they needed to 'get off the planet', set up a group of like minded people and start a new life away from the corruption of modern day living. Relationships developed on the Ark with friendships, love and romance, affairs, steamy sex, marital problems and friction. Daily life was peppered with humour; drama; births, deaths and marriages; celebrations and surprises. The dream was to live the 'good life' on the Ark. Little did the community know at the start of their new life together how elusive Utopia would be. The characters from different backgrounds, status and gender live together in close proximity, interacting in a multicultural melting pot, but seem unable to escape from corruption of external influence and attack, let alone the unpredictability of the weather and human nature.

But ever the optimist, as Albert often remarked 'Your never know what's over the horizon'.
