ONE WORD REVOLUTION tells the story of a fictional world in which government-mandated concentration camps have stood for two decades. The camps hold immigrants of the same heritage, whose extremists have committed terrorism throughout the country.
Evelyn, a young woman who has never known life outside the camps, sends a letter over the walls. Her letter is found by a soldier named Riley, who has been doubting his role in the existence of the camps. Fueled by a growing curiosity for each other, they begin a dangerous correspondence that culminates in the destruction of the camp.
A union of the realities of the US Japanese Internment Camps, the Holocaust, and the Berlin Wall, One Word Revolution explores what can happen when hate is allowed to overtake a nation.
