Nada, a down-on-his-luck construction worker, discovers a pair of special sunglasses. Wearing them, he is able to see the world as it really is: people being bombarded by media and government with messages like "Stay Asleep", "No Imagination", "Submit to Authority". Even scarier is that he is able to see that some usually normal-looking people are in fact ugly aliens in charge of the massive campaign to keep humans subdued.Written by

Poignant in the year 2020
Just watched this clever and factional movie. With the world in lockdown right now, and politicians and their overlords bullying people out of their normal lives and telling untruths on TV. Well this film has some resonance there. Where's Roddy Piper when you need him. RIP to one of Saskatoon's finest. You left your mark down here with us brother.
