Fast Food Nation
Fast Food Nation Synopsis
'The Big One' is the latest burger from fast food chain Mickey's and it's turning out to be their most successful product yet. However, there's something strange in the meat...
So company man Don is sent down to Cody, Colorado, to investigate the local meat packing plant where all The Big Ones for all of America are made.
Meanwhile, Amber, a local teenage girl who works behind the counter of the local Mickey's outlet, is scared to death because there have been a series of mysterious robberies at the other fast food restaurants in the area.
But when she discovers the whole truth about fast food chains like Mickey's, Amber and her friends come up with their own radical plan to stop America becoming a Fast Food Nation.
