Consisting almost entirely of simple shots of grave sites and public shrines, and progressing through American history from colonial times to the present, the documentary is a monument to monuments, and a call to arms. The resting places of such famed figures as Malcolm X, Mother Jones, Cesar Chavez and Eugene V. Debs stand alongside some unfamiliar, but just as important radicals, and markers of crucial strikes, protests and massacres. These scenes are punctuated with Straubian landscapes of the wind blowing through trees, exemplifying the spirits of the nation's earliest massacred residents.
