If A Tree Falls follows the controversial story of Daniel McGowan who was arrested in 2005 on charges of domestic terrorism as a member of the Earth Liberation Front. The film details Daniel's wait for sentencing while under house arrest, intertwined with the dramatic history of the ELF who operated through anonymous cells and caused millions of dollars in damage to businesses believed to be destroying the environment. Daniel's story calls into question not only how we understand environmental activism but also terrorism and the justice system.
