With an introduction by Bato Talamantez, member of the San Quentin 6, indicted following the "Black August" events of 1971. The SQ6 trial was the longest in California history. Bato is also an organizer with the current California Prison Hunger Strike.

This feature film chronicles the political education and prison organizing of revolutionary hero George Jackson while in San Quentin prison, covering the last 14 months of George Jackson's life and his existence under subjective and objective conditions in California's prison industrial complex. George Jackson would spend 11 years in jail (7 of which were in solitary confinement) for a $70 gas station robbery crime in 1960. He was 18 years old when the sentence of one year-to-life was handed down to him. (121 min., 2007)
