New York film programmer John Pierson decides to pull up stakes and relocate his wife Janet, son Wyatt, and daughter Georgia to Fiji for a year. It's there that he purchases the 180 Meridian, ostensibly the most isolated movie theater on Earth. Despite a multitude of problems -- a drunk projectionist, bouts with dengue fever, local priests who disapprove -- the theater proves a success with locals, and documentary filmmaker Steve James chronicles the last month of their experiment.
