Accidental Death of an Anarchist synopsis

Following the death of a young, falsely-accused anarchist in police custody - the force is condemned by the general public. As they prepare for an inquiry into the incident, an unhinged showman known as the Maniac is arrested and begins to wreak havoc as he seizes the opportunity to put on a show, one that is an absurd recreation of their version of events. In his exposition, he reveals the cover-ups, corruption and deep idiocy of an institution hanging from a thread. Through his probing, hilarious, and startling investigation, the Maniac demonstrates himself as a hero of the people and a nightmare of the police.
