The first World Trade Organization meeting on American soil was scheduled to take place in late November of 1999 in Seattle. Follow a group of committed activists as they try to derail the happening through peaceful demonstration, opposing what they see the WTO as a self-proclaimed non-elected organization that works against the people’s interest.

Meanwhile the Mayor of Seattle promises peaceful and restraint reaction for the Police as long as the protests remain peaceful and non-violent.

But on day One of the conferences, Things gets out of course. And both sides now are in a race to regain control before the situation gets out of controls reach and spills on the streets…
