Description: A subversive musical comedy about love, art and anarchy. In a future where Jesse Helms and Strom Thurman are gods and morality is state-mandated, a rag tag band of art revolutionaries, led by performance artist Existo, wage a guerrilla war for perversity, drugs and the American Way. Existo (Bruce Arntson) - performer, entertainer, propagandist, most dangerous man in America - is the chosen one who can lead his people to the promised land of chaos and revolution - with his face in the soup and a song in his heart. True love Maxine (Jackie Welch) keeps the war provisioned with Little Debbie cakes and dark passion. Best friend Marcel Horowitz (Jim Varney) serves as right arm (or in this case left arm) and conscience. Revolutionary headquarters is The Sewer-- an underground nightclub run by full-figured drag queen Colette (Gailard Sartain). Existo's apostles are artists, clubbers and leftists - the disenfranchised, the eccentric, the truly insane. Their weapon against repression - art. Their chances - slim to none. Existo's nemesis Dr. Armand Glasscock (Mike Montgomery) has risen to supreme power through televangelism. He plots the final solution to art. His only stumbling block is Existo - whose perverse sense of rhythm, politics, and performance art have engaged a growing segment of the population. Existo must be stopped and the devious plan falls to Glasscock's toady and sidekick Roupen Dupree (Mark Cabus). Enter blond and vapid pop tart Penelope (Jenny Littleton) and Existo is more than momentarily distracted from revolution. Seduction, suicide, salvation and some other exciting word beginning with the letter S propel us to the big musical finish wherein justice prevails and the movie is over before the fun runs out.
