    Plot Outline:

    A drama based on the experiences of Kathryn Bolkovac, a Nebraska cop who served as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia and outed the U.N. for covering up a sex scandal.


    A freewheeling portrait of Ken Kesey and the Merry Prankster's fabled road trip across America.

    Trivia: There are 1 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Ken Kesey's original crew of self-proclaimed “Merry Pranksters” shot about 40 hours of 16-mm film in an unfinished project. Reportedly, Kesey several times showed all 40 hours – unedited – before he stored the film cans in Eugene, Oregon. They were rusting away until saved by the documentary directors, who first discovered they existed in 2004.
