Free speech is put to the test in this award-winning documentary that tells the story of Bill Nevins, a high school teacher and poetry coach who was suspended and ultimately fired for standing up in support of his students' antiwar poems. In the end, Nevins's plight ignited a powerful free-speech movement that united the efforts of artists, poets and musicians in his community, who boldly fought back against censorship and police brutality.
