This documentary covers the actions and philosophy of Samuel Holden Lovejoy whose courageous act of civil disobedience is examined. Based on his objections to nuclear power, Lovejoy cut down a 500 foot tower owned by a nuclear power plant, turned himself in to the authorities, and endured a five-year prison stint. Along with telling Lovejoy's story, crucial issues concerning nuclear power, such as waste disposal, are discussed.
