This rivetting factual drama about the relationship between two socially committed political activists in the sixties culminates in the assassination of one by the other. Allard Lowenstein was a professor at Stanford who organized students to join a voter registration drive in the deep south. A student, Dennis Sweeney, joins the crusade and there his political consciousness is formed. Lowenstein eventually joined the political mainstream but Sweeney remained an outsider who drifted further and further into paranoia. Sweeney became convinced that Lowenstein was a CIA/FBI/Whatever agent and killed him.
