On Order



Producer John Alan Simon (The Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf, The Getaway) makes his feature directorial debut with this subversive sci-fi thriller based on a story by Philip K. Dick, and centering on a humble record-store clerk's struggle to expose a cosmic conspiracy in a dystopian, alternate reality. Nick Brady (Jonathan Scarfe) works in a Berkeley record store. He's always lived a content yet fairly unremarkable life, but when he begins receiving bizarre, extraterrestrial transmissions in his sleep, he realizes that U.S. President Fremont (The Walking Dead's Scott Wilson) is the leader of an oppressive regime that has slowly turned America into an autocratic society. Realizing that music may offer the best chance of awakening the public to the horrors they are too asleep to see, Nick moves his family to Los Angeles, and becomes a music-industry executive. Now, as Nick prepares to take on the world's most powerful and corrupt government in the name if intergalactic freedom, he'll need the help of his best friend, sci-fi author Philip K. Dick (Shea Whigham), and the enigmatic Silvia (Alanis Morissette) to get the job done before the powers that be can silence him forever. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
