Documentary about the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), an organisation that uses radical methods to protest against the destruction of the environment. The group were named eco-terrorists by the FBI and, in 2005, ELF member Daniel McGowan, along with five others, was arrested and faced charges for a number of crimes, including arson attacks on timber companies in Oregon. The film pays particular attention to McGowan's case while exploring the issues of activism, terrorism and the environment.
