Plot & Details

Writer/director Jed Weintrob takes a cue from Medium Cool director Haskell Wexler with this tale of a frustrated radio DJ who takes to the streets of Manhattan during the Republican National Convention. The Federal Communications Commission has slapped his station with $1 million in indecency fines, and popular radio personality Joe Pace (Josh Hamilton) isn't going down without a fight. As the streets fill with restless republicans, angry protestors, and other colorful characters, Joe arms himself with a wireless microphone and a portable transmitter in order to get the opinions of the average person on the street. The resulting film, which merges actual interviews with staged encounters, paints a vivid picture of a struggling media during a time in which a simple slip of the nipple and the subsequent extreme measures taken by the FCC sparked a fiery debate over "broadcast decency."
