A passionate, affecting documentary about the two Italian immigrant anarchists accused of murder in 1920 and executed in Boston in 1927 after a notoriously prejudiced trial.

Noted historians and writers (including Howard Zinn and Studs Terkel) provide context and commentary, actors John Turturro and Tony Shalhoub voice readings of letters Sacco and Vanzetti wrote while in prison, and interviews with relatives and people who knew the condemned men add depth to the story.
