- Human Rights, Contemporary Issues, and History
A young peace activist gives up a life of privilege in order to work to end the Vietnam War. For refusing induction in Virginia he is threatened with a five-year prison term .
During the appeal of his case, he forms a peace group that has the support of Cesar Chavez.
Singer Joan Baez funds the group's nonviolent campaign with benefit concerts.
Meanwhile, his fiancee and his family want him to either flee to Canada or avoid the draft with a fake deferment. Instead, he refuses to dodge the draft, saying he would rather go to prison to protest the war and have a clear conscience.
