About

"Special Needs Revolt!" Is an action-horror-comedy film. The film's hero, Billy Bates, is a young man with Down syndrome. He wakes up from a two-year coma and discovers that the United States has been turned into a brutal dictatorship thanks to President Krueger, who will be played by actor Bill Weeden (Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D.), has put all people with disabilities into institutions. Billy then decides to join a diverse group of resistance fighters to put an end to Krueger's reign of terror.

Special Needs Revolt is also a satire on our current political situation done in the style of Troma Entertainment. Lloyd Kaufman of Troma will also appear in the film as well. 

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges involved for this production are letting people know that this is a political satire which will have violence and raunchy humor and that people with disabilities are just like everyone else and can be in these kind of films if they want to and not be held back.
