Seen through the eyes and mind of the stories main protagonist Johnny Hodges, Jerusalem is a violent apocalyptic semi fictional vision of contemporary Britain, a land plagued by drug wars and racial tensions far removed from the once green lush pleasant pasture it once was when writers and poets waxed lyrical. Recently released from prison after serving a four year sentence, lifelong skinhead Johnny struggles to keep afloat trapped between the constant humiliating pressures of the probation service and the futility of the benefits system, Johnny quickly spirals into a deep depression fuelled by alcohol and drugs struggling to accept that the country he grew up in will never be the same again. Waking up one morning unable to accept the hopelessness of his life any longer, Johnny embarks on a suicidal mission of deep rooted righteous revenge on a world he no longer wants to be a part of.
