When a series of package bombs show up on the doorsteps of prominent politicians and businessmen in the summer of 1919, U.S. Bureau of Investigation Agent William Flynn (Strathairn) is assigned the task of finding those responsible. He becomes immersed in an investigation that uncovers an anarchist plot to destroy democracy. Inspired by true events of the 20's the film sets the stage for a timely thriller with resoundingly similar parallels to the contemporary war on terrorism and the role government plays to defeat it.

Based on well-known actual events. The "anarchist plot to destroy democracy" was merely imagined by Attorney General Palmer. The film is mainly about his ruthless exploitation of the bombings: terrorism as pretext for political posturing and oppression. (The more things change, the more they stay the same.)

Interesting film because of realistic portrayal of what the country was like 90 years ago. Story moved slow and some characters were caricatures. (Ha, ha)
