Behind every activist that fought for civil rights or occupied Wall Street, there was a loved one who also sacrificed. Tatanka follows the bizarre and heartrending journey of one man whose unchecked idealism helped change the world but nearly tore his family apart. This is a very personal and provocative look at a turbulent and life-changing time in our history. Featuring Joan Baez, Cesar Chavez and Daniel Ellsberg.
