The Assassination of Chicago's Mayor

13 mins Teen 2012 US United States of America



Violence, Religion, Guns, and Politics: Patrick Prendergast might be crazy, he might be sane, but he will do whatever it takes to show the world that he is right.


A newspaper peddler named Patrick Prendergast has delusions of greatness. Evidently slighted by the mayor, this self-anointed messenger prepares for a glorious rise from ignored lobbyist to influential icon. Prendgerast sees himself as a martyr, serving God with a noble purpose. The reality is far different. The Assassination of Chicago's Mayor is a historical account of late 19th century Chicago full of rhetoric that feels eerily contemporary. Prendergast follows his brand of ideological righteousness to its hateful end, an end where justice and revenge are one in the same.
