THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7 is a US drama, based on true events, in which seven people are put on trial following the uprising at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, Illinois. The TRUE STORY of what was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard. The organizers of the protest—including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale—were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.
