Storyline

In the near future, the NAU (North American Union) has replaced the nations of Canada, Mexico, and the United States. The ruling totalitarian super-government has seized power under the guise of 'saving the planet' (via 'protecting the environment'), and in doing so has shut down all dissenting voices, labeling them 'hate speech.' A 'nutrient pill' is regularly distributed to citizens...a pill full of toxins that causes fatigue to anyone who takes it. Frank Galloway has recently lost his young wife, Sarah, after she was picked up for distributing anti- government propaganda. With the help of a CNS (Civilian National Security) officer, Frank attempts to resurrect AM radio in order to spread the word about the pill...if the withdrawal symptoms don't kill him first.

A glimpse into the future?
11 April 2012 | by TheQuillandInkwellSee all my reviews

Watching Threnody at Ireland's International Film Festival made me wonder if Writer/Director Sean Buttimer had a sneaking suspicion about the fate of our country ...

Threnody, an artfully constructed film about the consequences of a North American Union left me at the edge of my seat .. literally! The acting and the direction, as well as the storyline, pulled me into a realm that seemed rather real, almost as if the events in the film were based on a true story. A totalitarian takeover is an element in Buttimer's film that really grabbed me, scared me even!

Alas, I must say that if fate has it and you can get yourself to a screening of Threnody, by all means do so!

Don't forget to order your nutrient pill at the concession stand!
