Heavy and very dark.

Provides a fascinating glimpse of the political divide engulfing America in 2020. Too close to the truth to be funny, especially since the plot resolution is less likely than civil war. Too dark for us as adults, likely to be highly distressing to anyone with a moral compass, especially children. More thriller genre than comedy.

This title has:

Too much violence
