Synopsis

Richard Fleischer directs this sci-fi thriller starring Charlton Heston and Leigh Taylor-Young. In a dystopian, futuristic New York in the year 2022, almost 20 million citizens, half of the city's population, are out of work. Voluntary death is encouraged by government clinics and people live on rations of a green food called Soylent produced by the Soylent Corporation. The film follows NYPD Detective Frank Thorn (Heston) as he investigates the murder of a wealthy business magnate in the dictatorial Soylent research camp.
