'Who is John Galt?' represents the third part of Ayn Rand's 1957 novel, 'Atlas Shrugged'. The novel is of a dystopian society in the not-so-distant future where the nation's economy is near collapse. The regulations of an overreaching government have strangled the country's few remaining entrepreneurs, and amidst the chaos, society's most productive have mysteriously disappeared.
'Atlas Shrugged: Who is John Galt?' is the climax of the personal journey of characters like Dagny Taggart (Laura Regan), but also the climax of the journey of the nation. The final movie spans the continent from a secret paradise in the mountains to the train tunnels undercutting New York City. It answers the question of 'Who is John Galt?', but leaves us with the question of 'is this fiction?'
