The film documents the career of the late civil rights attorney William Kunstler (pictured at left in Attica Prison, AP Photo), once dubbed the "country's most controversial and … its best known" lawyer for defending the Chicago Seven in 1969-1970.
Kunstler also famously defended members of the Black Panther Party, the Catonsville Nine, the Weather Underground, the Attica Prison rioters and the American Indian Movement. He was a board member of the American Civil Liberties Union and co-founded the Law Center for Constitutional Rights.
