Journalist Matt Corbin, on fishing holiday in Northern Minnesota, stumbles across a lake wherein all the fish have died; the local townspeople seem a bit paranoid, and Corbin is told he should probably look to fish elsewhere. Anti-communist film which originally was intended to be anti-Nazi, bordering on propaganda but now primarily eliciting mild amusement.
