Canadian distributor: Shaftesbury Films

William Bowman is a gullible but enthusiastic college graduate who has high hopes, and is sure that his lowly fast-food job will lead to greater things. When his gun-crazed father manages to get William a job in high finance, William’s can-do attitude and ability to follow the rules end up getting him noticed at the company, and it gets him a ribald sexual initiation as well. But William’s path will be a rocky one. William sets off on his own path in the world of paranoid 21st century America, where he becomes a travelling salesman of Christian fundamentalist propaganda books. Along the way, he finds himself lured into reality TV shows, as well as frequent sexual romps, and he even finds himself hosting a public execution. But when William accidentally discovers a government cover-up and conspiracy (he hears a radio report of a terrorist attack before it happens), he becomes a target of government agents who want to torture him, and revolutionary activists who want to exploit him. William manages to keep himself alive throughout this violent journey, but when he agrees to become the main character on a reality TV show called ‘Dead Man Running’, William’s status as public enemy #1 might just lead him to an untimely, but inevitable end.

The cast is listed in alphabetical order.
