New Granada was envisioned as a utopian community for the families that lived there … except for their kids. With only a Rec Center for any sort of entertainment, the youth lash out at the oppressive isolated atmosphere by partying hard and doing petty crimes. But when the community tries to squash their teenage rebellion, it instead combusts into a full-on revolution. With a script by Charles Haas (GREMLINS 2, MATINEE) and Tim Hunter (RIVER’S EDGE, TEX) Jonathan Kaplan takes a documentary approach of capturing the youth gone wild filled with an incredible soundtrack of rock anthems by Cheap Trick, The Cars, and others.
