Welcome to the bizarre universe of PLASTIC UTOPIA, a dark and vicious comedy from the dynamic team of David and Nathan Zellner! In a world where moral corruption and prosperity go hand-in-hand, James is out of his element. He's unpopular, whiny and cranky, not to mention a second-rate street mime fond of belittling his audience. James longs for a life or reckless abandon, much like that of his unscrupulous roommate Frank Feldspar - a thief, murderer, and a professional poet who is loved by all. James enthusiastically embraces the lifestyle of a hardened criminal, and he teams up with frank for a daring armed robbery. But the bungled heist ends in disaster, and James finds himself even more hated than before. Alienated and depressed, he plans one final act of social terrorism that will bring him the fame he so desperately craves...or will it?
