Like the original film, the video playfully skewers the political tensions of the time. Instead of a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union however, the plot follows a war-mongering air force general who launches a fictitious war 'for the kids' to justify arts funding cuts in favor of ramped-up military spending. The war even gets a jingoistic name, 'the War on Evil', that is used to indoctrinate the nation's youth. A shadowy (and seemingly desk-chair bound) weapons of mass media expert presents the war room with a live feed of how the plan is being carried out in school classrooms. Will the kids blindly accept the pro-war politics being foisted upon them or will they rise up in revolt? Written by Optic Nerve Films See less
