Set in a fictional dystopic US that has now become a fascist, police state, Kramer’s film follows a New York-based revolutionary group preparing for the guerilla attacks aimed to topple the government. Using a cinema-verité approach and manifesto directives as inserts, the film offers an important look at the idealism, ideologies and inherent limitations of revolutionary struggles against imbalances of power.
