- Inmate activist George Lester Jackson's short life became a flashpoint for revolution, igniting the bloodiest riot in San Quentin's history. In a story ripped from history's headlines, this film traces Jackson's spiritual journey and violent fate, from being sent up on a one-year-to-life sentence for robbing a gas station of $71 to galvanizing the Black Guerrilla Family with his incendiary book of letters, "Soledad Brother, " to the fierce August day when his younger brother Jonathan shocked the world by taking a California courtroom hostage to protest Jackson's upcoming trial.
