Set in an alternate reality amalgam of Great Britain and the U.S.A. where film and TV celebrities run the government and Max the leader of the free world is a sado-masochistic freak who spends the nations money on gaudy action movies. Outside the palace walls the nation is being overrun by violent rebels while their idealistic leader Thorne resides in jail quoting William Butler Yeats and being regularly tortured. Fiennes plays Joe a sympathetic prison guard who gradually adopts Thornes views and joins a plot to assassinate Max. But then when the revolution succeeds Joe finds a whole new nightmare awaiting him.
