The remarkable documentary of the rise and fall of the Earth Liberation Front, a radical environmental group that the FBI calls America's 'number one domestic terrorist threat,' told through the transformation and radicalization of one of its members, Daniel McGowan. This story weaves a chronicle of McGowan facing life in prison and a dramatic investigation of the events that led to his involvement with the ELF. The result is a film that is equal parts coming-of-age tale and cops-and-robbers thriller.
