In the 24th century, Guy Montag takes pleasure in his profession as a fireman, burning illegally owned books and the homes of their owners. However, Montag soon begins to question the value of his profession and, in turn, his life. Montag struggles with his existence, eventually fleeing his oppressive, censored society and joining an underground network of intellectuals.
