Synopsis
Childhood friends David McKay and Bradley Crowder from Midland, Texas, set out to prove the strength of their political convictions to themselves and their charismatic revolutionary mentor Brandon Darby. The result: eight homemade bombs, multiple domestic terrorism charges, a controversial entrapment defense—all wrapped in a story of idealism, loyalty, crime and betrayal. An intriguing coming of age character portrait with timeless themes of friendship, trust and betrayal, the film sheds light on several overlapping issues related to the government’s domestic counterterrorism program: the criminalization of protest and dissent since 9/11, an increasing culture of government surveillance, and the widespread and often disturbing misuse of informants.
