After suffering decades of brutal neglect, Winkie, a mangy old teddy bear, realises that he can actually move. He jumps out the window, and takes to the forest. But just as he is discovering the joys and wonders of mobility, self-determination, even love, Winkie's luck ends. Discovered by the military, who instantly conclude that he is the evil mastermind behind dozens of terrorist attacks, Winkie is brought to trial. In this War against Terror the prosecution will stop at nothing to get a conviction. Scathingly funny, and not a little weird, Winkie brilliantly exposes the cruel absurdities of our age and explores what it means to be human in an increasingly barbaric world.
