1044 W. Bryn Mawr Ave Chicago
This gritty and darkly funny drama is a psychologically complex thriller dealing with love, alienation, paranoia, and government conspiracy. The psychotic fervor with which the protagonist, an AWOL Gulf War veteran, rants about his theories insidiously infects the mental stability of his new love interest, Agnes, a lonely alienated woman living on the seedy motel edge of town. Two kindred spirits against whom the world is encroaching, they take aggressive solace in their warped reality that "the Man" is out to get them. This leads to an overwhelming, inescapable paranoia and an explosive climax of epic proportions.
