This a documentary about a very small island in the South Pacific that is essential to the United States SAC program to use as a refueling base. In exchange for this honor, the CIA institutes a program that allows these tropical islanders to watch American television. With extension cords strewn about this small (a couple miles around) island, people sit in their straw lean to’s and huts and watch American television. An American via agent gets tapes from ABC and this film documents the effect that this media and propaganda has on these innocent island people.
