      The qualities that make up heroes and villains are never quite politically universal. To the average Capitan of industry, anyone who threatens his or her foundation of heroic financial security probably doesn-t fall within the category of benevolent protagonist. On the other hand, some people have managed to boil the concept of evil antagonist down to anyone who believes that ketchup packets are a major food group on the lunch menu for underprivileged school children.

    To anyone who has yet to amass enough wealth to deflate the worth of upper class real estate with their mere residential presence, The Dogs Of Holly Warren might represent one bleak but entirely possible future. To the average well-to-do hard core Conservative, it might represent an authentic reason to run about in small circles while screaming like Chicken Little.

    From the poverty-ridden streets of Boston-s mongrel sector, Frank Riley abandons his gang to set out on a hobo-s hunger-driven journey to the Mexican border, where available employment has been rumored in the lofty citrus-picking industry. Instead, he meets up with the looniest batch of bleeding hearts to ever live below the only remaining tax-bracket, outside the legitimate economy, and still own their own submarine.

    In facing a threat to the future existence of all non-Caucasians, all of Holly Warren-s hopes ride on her aging father-s knowledge of germ warfare, and the less than heroic shoulders of a young transient who has just been dubbed with the well-deserved code name of Jackass.

    By the end of the twenty-first century, the Middle Class are extinct, Medicare and Social Security are things of the past, Single-Party-Politics rule the United States with an iron fist, and the only thing standing between total Upper-Crust domination and the remaining 85% of huddled, starving, and sometimes cannibalistic masses is a ragtag network of bogus churches, and a handful of their slightly off kilter operatives.

    Follow Agents Pollyanna, Big Daddy, Momma Bear, Codger, and Jackass in this Political Satire/Action Adventure/Romantic Comedy as they endeavor to turn the tables on America-s -Trickle Down- destiny, and the manmade virus that threatens to sterilize an entire impoverished population.
