The culture wars heat up when former chairman of the Texas Board of Education Don McLeroy, who interprets the bible to mean that man and dinosaurs lived together and the Earth is no more than 6,000 years old, runs for re-election. His platform is based on teaching only creationism, and, as Texas is a major buyer of textbooks, the debate has far-reaching implications. Documentary features interviews with teachers, politicians, pundits and religious leaders.
