A “Mohawk Media” FILM
WRITTEN BY Peter Griffin

When Kiwi rocket inventor Ed Hamilton lets slip to a British reality TV crew that he's built a cruise missile for under $5000 in his garage, he triggers a media firestorm and a chain reaction of farcical events. His timing doesn't help - it's the day of the US invasion of Baghdad. Soon Ed is branded a terrorist and risks losing everything he holds dear - his beloved X-Jet rocket, his run-down farm and his long-suffering family.

One man against the state, against the world, Ed must try and justify his reckless actions if he is to salvage what is dear to him.

Based on a true story...a black, farcical comedy in the vein of Wag the Dog and Dr. Strangelove.
