In the early '70s, the radically enraged, bomb-planting fringe group call Weathermen had the distinction of being as alienated from the anti-war counterculture as the counterculture movement was from the rest of America.

In the 1960s and 70s the US youth political movement grew tired of the seemingly ineffectual methods of peaceful protest and resistance.

Through archival footage and interviews of the veterans of both sides of this conflict, this film covers the resistance movement's campaign of selective violence through this period until changing times and disillusionment brought it to an end
