Oliver and Bernadette are a couple who are figuring out what it’s like to be with each other, which becomes even more difficult when the government passes the Hush Law – a law that limits you to speaking 140 words a day. We see their relationship develop, in good and bad ways, as they struggle with the political climate and with the new dynamics that their relationship has to adopt.

In 140 words.
