When the FBI was spying on ordinary American citizens, was it wrong for eight activists to break into an FBI field office to prove it?

A significant but relatively unexplored event in modern American history is brought to light in this gripping tale of the activists who called themselves the Citizens’ Commission to Investigate the FBI. Stealing and releasing documents from an FBI field office, the group exposed COINTELPRO, a vast and illegal government-sanctioned program of spying and intimidation. Through a mix of dramatic reenactments and candid interviews, this documentary raises pertinent questions of privacy in an era of government surveillance. Also included is an 85-minute program featuring Edward Snowden in conversation with the Citizens’ Commission.
