Embittered by the blighted landscape of the contemporary United States, inventor Allie Fox (Harrison Ford) moves his wife and kids to the rain forest of Central America, where he plans to create a new civilization starting with his own nuclear family. Although they compliantly go along with Allie's scheme to build a free society, the other Foxes notice that Allie's single-minded obsession and driving egomania have turned him into a tyrannical fascist who demands total subservience from his broken brood.

A stretch for Ford, but worth it. Unique and fascinating character study.
