Would you go to prison if you could stop a nuclear war?
Three Catholic activists, a nun, deacon, and priest, break into the MegaMuerte Corporation plant and destroy nuclear warhead triggers. They wait and wait and wait for the cops to arrest them. Finally, they call 9-1-1 to report the military-industrial complex's conspiracy to blow up the earth. What happens next is a full-tilt romp.
Alex Charns is a Durham criminal defense attorney and author of Bones of Black Saints and Cloak and Gavel: FBI Wiretaps, Bugs, Informers and the Supreme Court.
