Com base em ficheiros recém-libertados, o retumbante filme de Sam Pollard expõe a vigilância e o assédio do governo dos Estados Unidos a Martin Luther King Jr., levada a cabo pelo FBI. A vida de King foi abreviada aos 39 anos mas o reinado de J. Edgar Hoover, no FBI, duraria 48. Na América de hoje, os legados de ambos podem continuar a ver-se, numa nova onda de protestos e retrocessos.
