Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In the tradition of Dr. Strangelove, this black comedy follows the adventures of two scuba divers who are on a dive off the southern California coastline when they find a hydrogen bomb that was accidently dropped by a passing B-52 bomber. For a lark, the two decide to blackmail the entire population of Los Angeles into sending one dollar to a Swiss bank account. If they do not, the boys will explode the bomb. Naturally, they are caught and must donate the $2 million they received to control smog. In exchange, the court is lenient upon them.
