Somehow, someway Atlas Shrugged Part I made nearly $5 million at the box office and even though its a far cry from its reported $20 million budget, a sequel has already been completed.

Dagny Taggart, Vice President in Charge of Operations for Taggart Transcontinental, has discovered what may very well be the answer to a mounting energy crisis – found abandoned amongst the ruins of a once productive factory, a revolutionary motor that could seemingly power the World.
