This semi-satirical story depicts the rise of one politician, who managed to win the election and create a society that is governed by his loyal political militia. They are often flawed anti-heroes, placed in situations out of their control where a ‘happy ending’ may not be possible.

Once you have purchased the land, you can only modify the land within four meters of its original shape unless otherwise noted. In the tradition of hard-boiled detective fiction, the film’s first scenes follow a private investigator (Harrison Ford) as he calls on some of the masters of this capitalistic world.
