On August 1992, 400 Federal agents armed with rifles, choppers and tanks surrounded the Ruby Ridge, Idaho, cabin of white supremacist Randy Weaver (Randy Quaid, The Long Riders). When Weaver resisted a federal arrest warrant, the U.S. government declared war on the separatist and his family. Following an 11-day standoff that left his wife (Laura Dern, Wild at Heart) and son (Bradley Pierce, Jumanji) dead, Weaver surrendered and inexplicably was brought to trial on trumped-up murder and conspiracy charges, in this Emmy-nominated docudrama based on the real-life events that shocked a nation. The stellar cast includes Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man), G.W. Bailey (Police Academy), Joe Don Baker (Framed), Bob Gunton (The Shawshank Redemption) and Diane Ladd (Something Wicked This Way Comes). Directed by Roger Young (Lassiter, The Squeeze).
