  • "After his father is gunned down during a seemingly random shooting in a vast shopping mall, recently fired ad executive Richard Pearson travels to the suburbs to investigate and soon uncovers at the Metro-Centre mall a violent neo-fascist movement with a charismatic spokesperson whipping up the masses into a state of unsustainable frenzy. Riots frequently terrorize the complex, immigrant communities are attacked by hooligans, and sports events mushroom into jingoistic political rallies. Pearson is slowly drawn into the gravity at the Mall and the reactionary forces that are blooming in the wake of this surreal consumerist utopia."
