You can kill a revolutionary but you can't kill the revolution.

A career thief, O'Neal revels in the danger of manipulating both his comrades and his handler, Special Agent Roy Mitchell. Hampton's political prowess grows just as he's falling in love with fellow revolutionary Deborah Johnson. Meanwhile, a battle wages for O'Neal's soul. Will he align with the forces of good? Or subdue Hampton and The Panthers by any means, as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover commands?

Inspired by true events, the ensemble cast masterfully showcase an overlooked story of activism set with the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party.
