Narrated by actor Martin Sheen, this feature-length documentary chronicles the story pacifists Randy Kehler and Betsy Corner whose western Massachusetts home was seized by federal marshals and IRS agents after they publicly refused to pay federal taxes as a protest against war and military spending. When a young couple buys the contested home at action from the U.S. government for $5,400, they become involved in a political and moral battle much larger than what they originally bargained for. World Premiere, Sundance Film Festival. Nationally broadcast on Cinemax, Sundance Channel, and Free Speech TV.
