A suspected vehicular homicide opens the floodgates to a vast conspiracy that implicates politicians in the highest ranks of the Indian government in this adaptation of Vassilis Vassiliko's popular novel Z. A construction crews prepare to break ground on a massive International Business Park, a drunken trucker careens into an outspoken social activist. Was it a simple accident, or perhaps something far more insidious? Convinced that the deceased victim was purposefully silenced, a dogged investigator teams with a shady pornographer to reveal the evidence that will shake the very foundation of the Indian government. Meanwhile, a powerful bureaucrat launches his own investigation into the accident.
