The Trial of the Catonsville Nine is based on the court transcripts of the trial of nine peace activists who broke into a drafting office in Catonsville, Maryland on May 17th 1968, and burned 378 draft cards with homemade napalm. Father Phil Berrigan and his brother Father Daniel Berrigan lead the movement, joined by seven additional parishioners in their protest for peace. In sharp contrast to the wave of young, liberal extremists at the forefront of the resistance headlines, The Nine give a new face to activism and inspire hundreds of anti-war demonstrations that follow.
