Two eager American teenagers explore the 1962 Seattle World's Fair, paying particular attention to the Bell Systems pavilion where the latest in telephone & communications technologies are being demonstrated.

The following background information courtesy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Century_...
The Century 21 Exposition (also known as the Seattle World's Fair) was a World's Fair held April 21, 1962, to October 21, 1962 in Seattle, Washington. Nearly 10 million people attended the fair. Unlike some other World's Fairs of its era, Century 21 made a profit.

As planned, the exposition left behind a fairground and numerous public buildings and public works; some credit it with revitalizing Seattle's economic and cultural life. The fair saw the construction of the Space Needle and Alweg monorail, as well as several sports venues and performing arts buildings (most of which have since been replaced or heavily remodeled). The site, slightly expanded since the fair, is now called Seattle Center; the United States Science Pavilion is now the Pacific Science Center. Another notable Seattle Center building, the Experience Music Project, was built nearly 40 years later and deliberately designed to fit in with the fairground atmosphere. .
