Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world he lives in, which
demands absolute obedience and controls him through the all-seeing
telescreens and the watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the
Party. In his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love
affair with a fellow-worker Julia, but soon discovers the true price of
freedom is betrayal.
