The film is about a new political party called the "Good for You" abbreviated as GFY which comes into power and bans chocolate Two kids named Smudger Moore and Huntley Hunter want to get their chocolate back They begin by selling bootleg chocolate, and go on to join an underground resistance organization

The film climaxes in a huge revolution where people take to the streets They demand that chocolate be brought back, and that the government be overthrown

It tells us about how they face ups and downs on their way

The way in which the revolution is triggered, by a group seizing a "terrorist-proof" broadcasting studio to broadcast a message of resistance, has a remarkable resemblance to V's broadcast in the graphic novel V for Vendetta 1982–1988



Bootleg was first published as a book written by Alex Shearer and is published by Macmillan Children's Books on 4 July 20032
