Abstract:

This videodisc explores the extraordinary story of what happens when a freedom-loving nation outlaws the sale of intoxicating liquor, and the disastrous unintended consequences that follow.

When the country goes dry in 1920, after a century of debate, millions of law-abiding Americans become lawbreakers overnight.
