It’s 1968, when the 8 protagonists protest at an event of the Democratic Party. After being imprisoned for the revolutionary acts, following a series of unexpected events and controversies, the group goes to a hearing, with William Kunstler as their defense attorney.

The 8 “enemies” of the government are Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, John Foines, David Dellinger, Tom Hayden, Lee Weiner, Rennie Davis and Bobby Seale and their demonstrations will cost them dearly.

In these uncomfortable and complicated circumstances for the 8 defendants, it will not be easy to win a trial, being put at loggerheads by the US government.
