A group of Vietnam vets disturbs television programs from a B-29 airplane. They want to sabotage Mrs Westinghouse's political campaign who is running for the Senate in support of US military involvement in South America. Mrs Westinghouse orders some nuclear missiles to be launched against the saboteurs, but they manage to avoid the impact and even succeed in exposing a big secret of hers.

Thought it's a "reissue" title, this movie is known by anyone who remembers it as 'Riders On The Storm', which made sense since it starred Dennis Hopper, who would always fitfully play burnt-out character from the 1960's, when the titular song by the Doors was popular. See more
When Sam is picked up from the building, with a rope ladder hanging
from the belly of the the B-29, for a brief moment the landing skids
of a helicopter are visible.
However, as the Aspect ratio listed for the film is 1.33 : 1 (negative
ratio) 1.85 : 1 (intended ratio), it leads me to believe we're seeing
things that were meant to be "matted" out at the top and bottom to
make the aspect ratio 1.85 : 1. There is also a scene where the
religious group is shooting or doing a commercial and we see a boom
microphone at the bottom of the screen. This also would have been
"matted" out at 1.85 : 1. See more
The closing credits of the film include a video screen showing the film itself being played backwards at high speed. See more
