Embedded within an eco-terrorist group committed to direct action, investigative journalist Owen Graham is enmeshed in a dangerous culture on the political fringe. Ordinary citizens, frustrated by inequality and bureaucracy’s resistance to change, are starting to go off the grid and disrupt the status quo. But the fringe is poised to go mainstream, and Owen’s days as a passive observer are running short.
When a serious of escalating misunderstandings land an idealistic public school teacher in the middle of a hostage situation and in the sights of an overeager federal agent, Owen intervenes in a desperate, split-second decision that changes his life forever. Now he’s on the run with a trio of fellow crusaders, all fighting for a better world, but labeled as terrorists by the government. As belief systems clash, an inexorable spiral of violence ensues.
AMERICAN TERRORIST is a high-speed chase across the country testing the bonds of love, loyalty, and friendship as the search for radical solutions to injustice inspires a movement that may be snuffed out before it starts.
