M.A.D. archiveAt the height of the Cold War M.A.D. stood for Mutually Assured Destruction. For 11-year-old John it meant Mum and Dad. M.A.D. is a poignant and compelling family drama following the lives of a struggling market trader, his frustrated wife and their young boy John, as their whole world appears to be coming to an end. Set in 1984, in the aftermath of the terrifying post-apocalyptic TV drama 'Threads', and then nearly twenty years later, M.A.D. tenderly explores the gap between the lifestyles and aspirations of parents and son. Out of a world full of cold war paranoia, an emotional fall-out haunts this ordinary family, threatening to rip apart the love that once drew them together.
