Today the Bullfinch

  • Setting

    Set in the not too distant future.

  • Synopsis

    Mr. P.P. Crawthumper sets up a factory in the luscious green Irish valley community. With an ecclesiastical blessing and a good PR officer, he decides to manufacture intangibles - a deadly gas called CC5. As an automated factory floor kills off the chance of there being local employment, so the production of the gas kills off the natural flora and fauna of the valley.
