Protect and Survive is a tense drama set in rural England, 1984, against the backdrop of the Cold War. Kirsty has recently moved to the village with her brother Charlie and their widowed father. Out walking one day, she meets local boy Jack who tells her about a government nuclear bunker hidden beneath his family’s farm. At first she doesn’t believe him, but Jack promises to take her, and her brother Charlie, down into the bunker. As dark secrets and repressed desires come to the surface, not everyone will emerge alive.
