Fifteen years from now, the world is lit by widely spaced 40 watt light bulbs and populated by people who wear weird clothes. A mysterious plague that's OnlyFatalToAdults has devastated the world and left the surviving children to grow up on their own. The children have created a new society with only comic books and other old-world pop-culture as their guide. In this dystopia, your hero Lee (the cowboy guy with a cow skull helmet) decides to go to the big city (Los Angeles) to prove himself and join the most famous biker gang around -- the "L.A. Clippers". He soon ends up a pawn in a battle between the Clippers and a rival gang led by the foppier brother of Alex from Clockwork Orange.

Meanwhile Wickings (Kim Cattrall) and Bolo (Robby Benson), part of the Sunya corporation (a group that reinvented the [[MegaCorp corporation]] after the apocalypse), move into town and attempt to exploit the gangs for commercial profit in an attempt to rebuild LA. "What commerce?" you ask, seeings how it's after the apocalypse and all. Well, repeat to yourself "it's just a show, and I should really just relax." Wickings tries to bring the Clippers to the negotiating table, but [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Bolo and his higher-ups]] simply stage an attack on the gang, enslaving most of them except for the few that Lee helps escape.

Meanwhile Wickings (Kim Cattrall) and Cattrall), Bolo (Norbert Weisser) and Carver (Robby Benson), part of the Sunya corporation (a group that reinvented the [[MegaCorp corporation]] after the apocalypse), move into town and attempt to exploit the gangs for commercial profit in an attempt to rebuild LA.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Bolo Bolo, Carver and the Sunya corporation.



* DynamicEntry / ShutUpHannibal / WalkInChimeIn: All three rolled up into one tidy package. At the end, the Clippers confront Carver in his office, and he lays a villain speech on them about the inevitability of someone like him. Ray (the SixthRanger) responds by bursting into the office on his motorcycle and ramming the desk, smashing Carver against the wall, and saying [[LittleNo "No."]]



* TheHeavy: Bolo does most of Sunya's dirty work; Carver spends nearly all his time in an office.



* HighHeelFaceTurn: Wicker (Kim Cattrall), an honorable Sunya executive who joins the Clippers after Bolo crosses the MoralEventHorizon.

Anyway, Robbie Benson's shady business that is selling who-knows-what to who-knows-who comes under attack once cow-skull guy convinces the assorted biker types to team up with his surrogate father Albert -- played by an embarrassed [[Creator/JamesEarlJones James "I needed to pay the rent" Earl Jones]]. The RagtagBunchOfMisfits stages a counterattack on Sunya in a finale that will shock and surprise amnesiacs and people who have just arrived on planet Earth.
