Set in a dystopian near future, Stop:Watch centres on the incarcerated dissident scientist, Dr. Catherine Jones. Beaten and abused on an almost daily basis, Catherine seems a shell of her former self. But, facing execution for crimes against the state, Catherine's fate rests in the hands of the prison Governor, Lucy. Lucy is not your usual Governor. Playful and psychotic in equal measure, she puts Catherine in a position of having to outwit her own invention. Catherine is in a tight spot other than the tiny cell in which she's been held.
