The record-breaking sequel to 'Billy Jack' finds Billy on trial and sentenced to prison while the Jean Roberts and her Freedom School flourishes. The school's utopian oasis encourages everything from 'yoga' sports to muckraking journalism, which is making the school powerful enemies. The more the student's air scathing exposes on their school television station, the more they turn the narrow-minded townspeople and their powerful business owners and politicians against them.
Billy Jack comes home from prison just as the crisis between the school and the town reaches its peak. Billy's desire for spiritual growth under the tutelage of his grandfather is interrupted by escalating confrontations that end with the state governor ordering the National Guard to surround the school and stop the violence at all costs.
The 'Trial of Billy Jack' pioneered the concept of releasing a movie in 1,000 theatres on the same day, and advertising a film on national television, two things that had never happened before. The film made $30 million in its first 30 days, and changed the film industry forever.
