Cast: Paul Jones, Jean Shrimpton, Marc London A rock star becomes the puppet of a fascist regime in this bogglingly prescient satire. In the near future, the state, church, and big business conspire to transform Steven Shorter (Jones) from just another Top of the Pops flavor-of-the-week into an unwitting messiah for their dark agenda.
