Nuclear testing is to be done on a remote Pacific atoll. Though the military is adamant in proceding on schedule, and at all costs, the natives on the island refuse to leave.
Will the curse of the tribe doom the experiment? Will the commanding officer heed their warnings, and let them hold onto their homeland? The curse seems sealed when the natives commit mass suicide rather than lose their home.
The final countdown is one that leads to one disaster after another. The bomb doesn’t go off, the commander and top scientist personally go to find out what happened, and then… Well, just listen and enjoy the final twists, and an ending that may not be as predictable as you would expect.
