Synopsis

John Frum, Messiah of polynesian Cargo Cults, returns as an astronaut and businessman to the postindustrial wasteland of the financial-service-economy. Together with a native, he sets out for a conquest of the useless; then things get confused, and what begins as a journey turns into a trip far off the boundaries of so called logic and meaning.
