The plot is this: everyone is (basically) required to stay home at night at watch TV. The protagonist doesn't want to watch TV , he want to get out and go for a walk and enjoy the night like a "normal" person. This attitude, needless to say, gets him into a spot of trouble. Don't know if this is your story but ya' got me interested now. Thanks fer listenin'.
