    The farmers of Paradise County have been leading a hardscrabble life unchanged for generations. The Communist government encourages them to plant garlic, but selling the crop is not as easy as they believed. When a surplus on the garlic market ensues, the farmers watch in horror as their crops wither and rot in the fields. Families are destroyed by the random imprisonment of young and old for alleged crimes against the state. The farmers storm the headquarters of corrupt Communist officials in a riot of apocalyptic proportions.
