About One Drop
n war-torn Britain, inseparable Black Radicals Axel and Dune are arrested. With SIMs implanted in their heads, they are placed in a prison camp for those who defy the Bloods’ white supremacist government. The SIMs brainwash them with the Bloods’ evil philosophy, and drones constantly monitor their movements and thoughts.
In this living nightmare, the couple battle to keep their love alive and to break free. The odds of survival are long. Dune and Axel have very different takes on how to escape.
But when things come to a head, will their love hold them together and set them free, or will it tear them apart?
