We have the trailer and more to see so glance ahead and look out for this one.
A darkly comic, raw and controversial thriller that packs a hard punch at the inequalities and divisions that led to Brexit and Trump’s victory. Danny (Jack Roth), an ordinary working-class kid, is angry and frustrated at the rough deal he faces. When he confronts Conrad (Tim Bentinck) a member of today’s privileged elite, he aims to teach him and his kind a lesson they will never forget.
Holding Conrad and his family hostage in their plush mansion, Danny, and his pals force Conrad into a deadly game of chance. Danny’s master plan is to kick-start a revolution by streaming attacks against the super-rich one percent on the web. His ultimate goal? To terrify the elite into bringing about change.
The film made its world premiere at the 2017 South by Southwest Film Festival and created a stir when Drudge Report highlighted it as a political attack on the 1%.
