(from ABC's press release) Every action results in a reaction...although some reactions are bigger than others. Today, though, could be the biggest in U.S. History. In western Kansas, farmer Tom Sampson is forced to choose between paying taxes and losing his farm. He chooses his family's farm in a stance of self-preservation. But, when his reporter cousin makes him into a local media hero for standing up to the government, Tom's seemingly small move of defiance sparks an underlying resentment among his fellow farmers. One West Point professor (Dylan McDermott:The Practice), closely watching the rising tension, notices similar characteristics to other world events...both historical and current day...and reasons that the United States may be facing a second civil war. The producer of Speed, Saving Private Ryan and The Day After Tomorrow delivers an exciting modern-day story of civil disobedience and citizens demanding action.
