God Is American

Since the end of World War II, the people of Tanna, a remote island in the South Pacific in the Archipelago of Vanuatu, idolize an American prophet, named John Frum. The islanders believe he is an American pilot that returned to the United States after the war, and will come back to Tanna with riches from the US that they call "the cargo." They pray to an American flag, awaiting his return. One man, Isaac, who claims he is Frum's son, has formed an army of GI's to celebrate the eventual return of the prophet to their island. This is not science fiction, but it is off beat. Coffee isn't needed to stay awake for this one!
