Summary
In June of 1963, the governor of Alabama, George Wallace, attempted to prevent two black students from enrolling at the University of Alabama. The film shows the course of events by trailing the actions of those involved, including President John F. Kennedy, attorney general Bobby Kennedy, Wallace, and the two students. Producer of film was granted unprecedented access to President John F. Kennedy and attorney general Bobby Kennedy in order to give a close look at the inside workings of the administration during a crisis. One of the students and Nicholas Katzenbach, the deputy attorney general at the time of the events, watch the archival footage and give their perspective on the events twenty-five years after they have happened.
