''In October 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis occurs and the menace of nuclear war looms over the American South. Low-budget filmmaker Lawrence Woolsey is in Key West, Fla., debuting his new film «Mant!» and thinks the prevailing mood of fear surrounding the premiere is perfect to stir up some excitement. A group of local teenagers prepare for the film's opening night, experiencing small crises of their own.''
