    This is the most powerful and successful satiric comedy I have ever seen in criticizing the famous Marshall Aids! Policy.

    A small town in Spain is chosen to set the background. One day the folk is told that they would get enormous economical help from America if they succeed in greeting them well enough. So people begin brainstorming, prepare lots of things, write their urgent wish-list and wait...

    The urgent wish-list, I think, is the most arguable-important part in discussing the necessity of this so called Aids! Policy.
