Six has a strange and inexplicable disease that will end his life unless he agrees to assimilate to Village life.
Two (Sir Ian McKellen) is expanding The Village as ‘Newcomers’ arrive on buses, leaving Six (Jim Caviezel) even more driven to understand what the purpose of this place is and how he can get himself and other Villagers out.
Six has flashes of his New York existence. He realises that in New York he is being taken to see the head of Summakor (the company he worked for).
The driver taking him there is none other than The Village taxi driver.
Meanwhile, 11-12 (Jamie Campbell Bower) smothers his mother to death with a pillow and then hangs himself. Two is distraught to lose his only son and the wife he loved so much.
More worrying still are the holes that are rapidly appearing everywhere since M2′s (Rachel Blake) death.
Two talks secretly to 147 and asks him to help. He tells him he must call out ‘Six is the One’ when Two gives him the nod.
In New York, the head of Summakor is a Mr Curtis – Two. He explains that The Village is a means of controlling individuals by controlling their subconscious minds.
The Village exists within. It is a sophisticated form of mind control. In an age of deep insecurity where society is breaking down what better way to rebuild civilisation than by controlling how people think?
