The controversial city of Mountain Creek, Washington is abruptly framed for being way too oppressive, intolerant, and culturally insensitive, after one of Pants’ offensive joke accidentally stirs violence across the community. With much aggression on the town by a far-left media, hippies, and various protesters, the United States government passes a new law which insists that the citizens of mountain Creek must be educated on various politically correct topics including tolerance and multiculturalism. This gives a communist ruled California the chance to invade the Pacific Northwest, to claim it as their territory, eventually beginning a war. Bucket Head, Chuck, and Pants, who are now outcasts in their newly changed town, end up on a mission to defend the Pacific Northwest from invading forces. However, they soon find themselves also seeking to prevent the mayor from using the war as an excuse to promote his own fascist government.
The film (like the series) openly takes place in an alternate timeline in which California has seceded from the United States.
The film is based on the animated series Kitchen, produced by Deadpan Productions. The three main characters include Victor "Bucket Head"McCoy, Ezekiel "Pants" Feldstein, and Chuck, a trio of middle schoolers who strive throughout their chaotic and inhuman town. After the series was suddenly cancelled on the FOX Broadcasting Network, it was later revived on Tetragon on April 27, 2001.
