Synopsis

Based on the novel No One Thinks of Greenland  by John Griesener. A biting comedy in the  tradition of Catch 22 and M*A*S*H.
 
1979: Qangattarsa - Top Secret Military Hospital.
 
The Vietnam War ended four years ago. Reagan has just announced his intention to stand for President with George Bush as his running mate on a ticket of 'Peace Through Strength'. The US military kicks into action with a huge injection of finance and the USSR is about to lose the cold war.
 
Meanwhile on Qangattarsa military base, Rudy Spruance is lost. Dropped off in the middle of no-where in the frozen wastes of the Artic. No one comes.
 
The Army doesn't make mistakes. As he comes round in an army hospital that doesn't offically exist, Rudy understands what it is to be on the sharp end of a 'small clerical error'.
 
'You'll want to scratch,' he's told when he comes around.
 
'Don't.' advises the orderly.
