Based on mysterious messiah John Frum's prophecy, priests on the island of Tanna in the Pacific conduct rituals to keep their history alive. The camera observes the cult surrounding Frum, while Russell plays with the conventions of anthropological films. See also A Spell to Ward Off the Darkness in Bright Future.
