New York. 2022 A.D. Teeming with jobless, homeless people. Teetering on the edge of anarchy, the government rations synthetic food. Those who control the supply have unlimited wealth and power--as long as no one discovers the awful truth behind the source of Soylent Green. Academy Award-winner Charlton Heston (Ben-Hur, The Ten Commandments) stars as Thorn, possibly the last honest detective on the undermanned police force, who investigates the brutal murder of a prominent member of the Soylent Company, manufacturers of the artificial nourishment. During the course of his probe, Thorn discovers the horrifying main ingredient of the mass-produced food. Caught between personal integrity, the quest for justice and knowledge that could lead to the death of millions, will Thorn expose the deadly secret?
