Billy wakes up from a two-year coma and discovers that the United States has been turned into a brutal dictatorship thanks to President Kruger, to be played by award-winning veteran actor Bill Weeden (Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D.). Kruger has put all people with disabilities into institutions. Billy becomes the leader of a diverse group of resistance fighters committed to ending Kruger’s reign of terror.

This R-rated feature has the anti-establishment spirit of movies like The Toxic Avenger, Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s Team America: World Police, the 1980s action/satire The Running Man, and the exploitation satire Machete. It is inspired by author George Orwell’s 1984 as well as the brewing political climate of the United States.
