    Filmed during the historic 1970 elections in Chile, blends documentary footage of the Salvador Allende political campaign-including vicious street battles, mass rallies and screaming crowds-with a fictional story of political intrigue. The story involves a young woman Peace Corps worker who becomes involved with a mysterious American 'businessman' who is secretly involved in trying to thwart the election of Chile's first Marxist President. The film also features songs by popular Sixties singer Country Joe McDonald, who alternates between roles as a Brechtian chorus and the filmmaker's deus ex machina.
