Main Plot

In a future British dystopian society, a shadowy freedom fighter, known only by the alias of "V", plots to overthrow the tyrannical government - with the help of a young woman.


  • Hugo Weaving's character, V, is a masked vigilante who seeks to overthrow a totalitarian government in dystopian England.
  • Evey Hammond, played by Natalie Portman, is a young woman who becomes involved in a rebellion against a dystopian government.
  • Rupert Graves plays Dominic Stone, a detective who investigates V's activities and eventually becomes sympathetic to his cause.


In the ending of "V for Vendetta," directed by James McTeigue, the people of London rise up against the oppressive government, inspired by V's actions. V's plan to blow up the Houses of Parliament succeeds, sacrificing himself in the process. Evey, the main protagonist, takes up V's mantle and broadcasts a message urging the people to continue the fight for freedom. The film concludes with a massive crowd wearing V's signature Guy Fawkes masks marching towards the government, symbolizing the triumph of the people over tyranny.
