"The best film of the year by far" – GQ
Musician and activist Boots Riley’s incendiary and daring directorial debut tackles the inequalities of American society.
African American telemarketer Cassius Green (Stanfield) is desperate for success. Coached in a special technique to win over customers, he joins the elite world of the “power-callers”. As his former friends and co-workers protest against corporate oppression, Cassius falls under the spell of enigmatic CEO Steve Lift (Hammer), who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams.
A surreal, nightmarish trip into the dark heart of corporate America.
