On March 8, 1971, eight ordinary citizens broke into an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania, a town just outside of Philadelphia, took hundreds of secret files, and shared them with the public. In doing so, they uncovered the FBI's vast and illegal regime of spying and intimidation of Americans exercising their First Amendment rights. Despite conducting one of the most thorough investigations in its history, the FBI never solved the mystery of the break-in.

At the height of the anti-Vietnam War movement, an unknown group of dissidents broke into a local FBI field office in Pennsylvania and stole the documents from unsecured files. This was important for two reasons: the documents held important evidence of illegal FBI activities and then copies of the documents were sent to the press. Oversight was missing back then, but this documentary shows how the FBI was relaxed in it's security and was exposed.
