A small time cable TV reporter with dreams of the big time stumbles into a story far stranger than he ever imagined. It takes him on a journey into an underground world of subversion, talk radio and garage bands. Along the way, he discovers the shocking truth about fame, friendship and the American way.
Jack Sparks is a reporter for a local cable channel. He once did a series on the inventor of the paper bag. He wanders the streets of Fishtown with his camcorder, searching for the story that will bring him national acclaim. One fortuitous day he stumbles into a story far stranger than he realizes. Un-peeling its layers, Jack is drawn into the mysterious world of subversive underground organizations, conspiracy theories, late-night talk radio and garage bands. In his search for the truth, everything he believed about fame, loyalty and the American way is turned upside down. And to break the story, he’ll have to betray his only friend in the world. Jack must make a choice – and the consequences will rock his world.
