An extraordinary meditation on the nature of democratic progress in the United States, a one-of-a-kind documentary journeys from the gravesites to the public markers that document the people and incidents that make up over 400 years of struggle against economic oppression. Visits the resting places of such famed figures as Malcolm X, Mother Jones, Frederick Douglass, Cesar Chavez, Susan B. Anthony and Crazy Horse, alongside lesser-known but equally important heroes and radicals, including Frank Little, Uriah Smith Stephens and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Sites of pivotal struggles are also visited, such as King Philip's War, the 1770 Boston Massacre, the Stono Rebellion and the Homestead Strike.
