Synopsis

John Frum, Messiah of Polynesian cargo cults, returns to the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the financial service economy. Together with a native, he sets out on a ‘conquest of the useless’. What begins as a journey turns into a trip far off the boundaries of so-called ‘logic’ and ‘meaning’.
