From the late 1960s to the early 1970s the political situation in America was becoming alarming. There was an ongoing war in Vietnam along with the civil rights movements taking on the streets on the American soil.

At that time a new class of activist emerged, the ones that were willing to do more than just participate in the peaceful protests. Among those groups, there was one which stood out. That was ‘The Weatherman’. They began participating in the ongoing riots on the streets and even attempted to carry out an organized attack on the US government with the help of ‘Black Panthers’.

Watch this exciting documentary about the turbulent times in the US history.
