In the 1931 war-ravaged Mexico border town of Corazón de la Fuente, where the only enterprise in town is a brothel, Dr. Romulus Brinkley decides to build a gargantuan new radio tower to broadcast his miraculous "goat gland operation" said to cure sexual impotence. Inspired by the shenanigans of a real life American con man
