What did it mean to "go viral" before social media? HALCYON DAYS is a shrewd satire exploring what it took? to get America behind the 1983 invasion of the western hemisphere's smallest country?, Grenada. This eye-opening exploration of the D.C. "spin machine" is a brutally witty and thought provoking behind the scenes look at America's first public relations war.
