After assassinating the President, Amos Otis (Josh Katawick) pleads self-defense and must convince the jury that America was not only under attack by its unhinged ruler – but that his actions saved the country and the world. The assassin’s provocative testimony and ingenious defense turns the proceedings upside down and puts our country on trial.
He confronts our political climate head-on while daring the jury to side with a murderer on a suicide mission to save them. No one can tell if he’s a mad man, con man or savior of the world. Not even his attorney (Rico Reid). This searing, mind-bending political thriller is in the spirit of TheTwilight Zone and based on a Pulitzer Prize-nominated play. As one reviewer noted, “If you are wondering how fiction could read like our current reality, this is the story for you.”
