In a small, deeply conservative midwest town, a young school teacher is arrested for teaching the theory of evolution to his high school Science classroom. What follows is a gargantuan court battle between the two iconic lawyers of their day, the stirring of the town's passion for their convictions, and an assault on the very foundations of our freedom to choose, or even think, for ourselves. First staged at the height of McCarthyism, this incredible story continues to be frighteningly relevant even 70 years later.
