"The Insurgents" uses the events of 9/11 as a springboard to talk about politics and society, security and freedom, patriotism and dissent.
Led by a disillusioned former government operative turned radical left-wing academic, a group plans to detonate a bomb in the United States as an act of protest against what they feel are imperialistic actions. A fractured narrative structure adds to the suspense as complications such as love triangles and double crosses are gradually revealed.
It is an unflinching self-examination of what it means to be American, the state in which we find ourselves, the implications for the future.
