In 1970, a group of young American radicals called The Weathermen announced their intention to overthrow the U.S. government. Fueled by outrage over the Vietnam War and racism in America, they went underground later in the decade, bombing targets across the country that they felt symbolized the real violence that the government and capitalist power were wreaking throughout the world. This Oscar-nominated documentary interweaves extensive archival material with modern-day interviews to explore the group's incredible story.
