Synopsis

Billy Jack is a half-Cherokee, Vietnam veteran and martial arts expert who has been traveling through the American Southwest. He comes to a small town where the progressive school run by Jean Roberts has a student body made up of different races. The students are taught to practice non-violence and to react passively when the bigoted white people in town humiliate and abuse them. Jean has also worked with Billy Jack to help him control his temper, but when he witnesses some of the youngsters being coated with flour to make them look "white" he goes berserk, setting off a chain of violence which eventually results in a murder charge against him.
