Synopsis by Augustine Chay

French-Swiss writer-director Jean-Luc Godard’s film assumes the form of an avant-garde video essay. A collage of cinematic clips, music, paintings, and original footage accompany Godard’s narration, which presents a foreboding message about the filmmaker and the viewer’s responsibility to take decisive action to prevent atrocious crimes against humanity from being perpetuated by their government.
