Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

Since most of the members of the Weather Underground interviewed in this film were fugitives at the time it was made in 1974, the FBI attempted to impound it as evidence. After several years of legal battles, it was finally released. These radicals, deeply dissatisfied with the American political culture of the time, discuss their views and the reasons for their actions which resulted in criminal charges and their fugitive status.
