Robin Williams stars in this surreal anti-war fantasy directed by Barry Levinson (RAIN MAN, DINER). Williams plays Leslie Zevo, the son of a fun-loving toymaker. Leslie and his sister, Alsatia (Joan Cusack,) grew up surrounded by their fathers whimsical creations in the fantastic factory that he built. When their father dies, the children find that he has left his beloved business in the hands of his brother, a war-monger General (Michael Gambon), thinking that despite his childrens love of the company, they dont have minds for business. Unable to disregard his military sensibilities, the General embarks on his own secret project in an effort to make toys that fulfil his confrontational nature, developing video games for children that actually control live weapons. Discovering their uncles diabolical plan, Leslie and Alsatia set out to stop the general in his tracks and save their fathers dream factory from manufacturing lethal weapons. Levinsons interesting social commentary also features rapper LL Cool J as the generals son, Patrick, a military man who specialises in camouflage; and Robin Wright as Leslies love interest.
