In 2008, friends Brad Crowder and David McKay were so shocked by the American invasion of Iraq that they vowed to express their opposition at the Republican National Convention in Minnesota. Isn't the right to protest what distinguishes a democratic state? Posing as a protest leader, an FBI informant encouraged them to create pipe bombs and caused their arrest and subsequent prosecution as terrorists. The two men rejected the chance to plea bargain and withstood unbearable pressure to testify against each other. Their story offers a chilling, heartbreaking insight into how easily civil liberties and idealistic individuals become collateral damage. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Stranger than Fiction.
