In a sleepy little Himalayan country the U.S. ambassador, a political appointee, is entertaining an antidisestablishment columnist who smells red subversion round every corner. His reports start the sabers rattling. Soon the CIA comes to call, as well as a general with a mail-order catalogue of all kinds of armament. Caught up in the whirlwind is the stupefied prince, a native bandit; the ambassador's radical daughter from Radcliffe, eager to major in guerilla warfare, a native bandit; and a pacification expert who will tell the country how to settle back as it had been once the bomb craters are filled and the reconstruction period is over.
