Description

Trotsky works for a neuromarketing company that scanshis brain to test new products. Only his name isn't reallyTrotsky -- that's a code name he's forced to use at work. Andthe products aren't real -- they're just hologram prototypes.Trapped in an increasingly unreal world that leaves him hauntedby hallucinations, Trotsky goes in search of something genuine.Instead, he finds Holiday, a wannabe actress who fakes accidentsfor insurance settlements but who dreams of stardom.She leads him into an underground society of anti-corporateactivists and into a series of dangerous encounters, one ofwhich turns deadly. Discovered by the media, they are dubbedthe Warhol Gang. At first Holiday and Trotsky embrace theirnotoriety and fame, but they're forced to confront their owndesires and needs -- and differences -- when the Warhol Gangtakes on a life of its own and the body count rises.

The Warhol Gang is a black comedy for anyone who's everbeen trapped in an endless mall or fantasized about taking revengeon everyone in the office.
