A combination of archive images from the American war machine and a soundtrack from TV-commercials, this film takes us on a journey through time and space where everything was at stake – Vietnam. This film is a reflection on the mechanisms of power, whether linked to the subliminal imposition of consumer habits or to the power of weapons, made possible when people blindly accept a certain way of life.
