Summary
On May 17, 1968, three Catholic priests, a nurse, an artist and four others walked into a Catonsville, Maryland draft board office, grabbed hundreds of selective service records and burned them with homemade napalm. This poetic act of civil disobedience helped galvanize an increasingly disillusioned American public against the Vietnam War. This documentary examines this Sixties protest within our current times, when foes of Middle East peace, abortion, and technology resort to violence to access the public imagination. The film combines long-unseen archival footage with interviews with members of the Catonsville Nine, encouraging viewers to ponder the relevance of civil disobedience and the implications of personal sacrifice today
