The message of this film is clear: No More War. This film is a rather charming and persuasive entreaty from the children of this world to the adults to stop rushing headlong into conflict, and to remember that their decisions affect others who are rendered powerless to affect their own destinies.

A boy with green hair? Well, actually it's all about tolerance. But it's been done in such a way that the message never distracts your attention - it's just there, without pointing fingers. Quite an unusual film, but recommended to anyone who likes classic cinema.

Many movies have a message. In this case it's a message surrounded by a movie.

A war orphan Peter Fry (Dean Stockwell) who leads the precarious life after hearing tales of how "green" is color of spring and hope for all mankind in times of peril finds that his parents turn green. His grandfather convinces him that it is a badge or a symbol that he is going to do something great. Being pre-hippie days everyone else thinks he's just strange and it must've been something in the water or the milk. He has a vision allowing him to realize that he has a message for the world about how bad were is and that it creates war orphans. The question is how will this message be received and what will they do about his green hair?

The film and the message may be a tad more complex. However this is the jest of the movie.
