Using skillful cinema-vérité observation that allows us to draw our own conclusions, Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing, the directors of Jesus Camp, expose the molten core of Americas most intractable conflict. On an unassuming corner in Fort Pierce, Florida, its easy to miss the insidious war thats raging. On one side of 12th and Delaware sits an abortion clinic. On the other, a pro-life outfit often mistaken for the clinic its seeking to shut down. As the pro-life volunteers paint a terrifying portrait of abortion to their clients, across the street, the staff members at the clinic fear for their doctors' lives and fiercely protect the right of their clients to choose.
