What more do you want?

The “bad boys of magic” go over the edge in this mind-blowing comedy/mystery about two insanely competitive practical jokers who accidentally set in motion a diabolical time-bomb of a plot.

Penn & Teller, the award-winning stars of Broadway and television, employ the same shock tactics they use on Late Night with David Letterman, The Arsenio Hall Show and Saturday Night Live to create a crazed, role-switching murder mystery set in the dizzying world of Atlantic City casinos.

In a TV interview, thrill-loving Penn mentions his idea of a fun practical joke: “I wish somebody were trying to kill me. Wouldn’t that be great? It would give focus to my life, excitement! I’d be like James Bond.” Twenty-million people hear him. One decides to deliver a punchline he’ll never forget.

They call him Nomad. A man without a home, without a past. A new breed of warrior trained in the art of swordmanship and hand-to-hand combat, roaming the vast desert wastelands in a post-nuclear age… in a time where laws are useless and water is more precious than blood.

When Nomad’s old friend and mentor is brutally slain by the notorious swordsman Sho, Nomad heads for the desolate valley of Meridian to avenge his death. There he meets the beautiful Kasha, one of the many farmers being terrorized by the sinister warlord Damnil. The desperate farmers appoint Nomad their peacemaker, charged with protecting them against Damnil’s diabolical plot to control all the water of the valley. But as Nomad begins to help Kasha’s farm, thwarting Damnil’s carefully laid plans, he becomes the target of Damnil’s savage army, face-to-face with the bloodthirsty Sho, fighting for revenge, honor… and love.
