Inspired by the New York Times bestseller Assholes: A Theory by Aaron James, acclaimed filmmaker John Walker takes us on an investigative journey to test the limits of our acceptance of assholes in contemporary society. With the global acceleration of asshole behaviour, spurred on by social media, we feel the impact in business, politics and at home. How can we understand this particular type of problematic behaviour? More importantly, what can be done to push back against the rising tide of assholery? Entertaining and thought-provoking, this timely film explores James's theories and recommendations using clips sourced from Hollywood and news archives, combined with the ruminations of key observers of asshole-dom.
