The story in this very unusual black comedy, takes place in a near future that is experiencing a sudden rise of cases in spontaneous human explosion. Which means, people are literally exploding from the inside from unhappiness. The cause seems related to the very strict corporate rules that this society seems to adopt, favoring mind numbing production over the happiness or well being of its citizens. Soon enough the scare reaches Georges (Zach Galifianakis) a level three manager at the Jeffers corporation, as he now fears his impeding explosion will soon come. His fears spike when he realizes he is experiencing the first symptoms of the disease, in the form recurring dreams of being the President of the United States. As the cadence of the dreams increase Georges is in a complete state of panic, pushing him to reevaluate everything he knew about his life and boorish existence. An existential tale in the form of a black comedy, delivered impeccably by the comedic genius that is Zach Galifianakis.
