The extraordinary inside story of how four women disarmed an Indonesia-bound Hawk fighter with ordinary household hammers at a BAe factory in the UK in 1996 to prevent its use against the people of East Timor, and how, to gasps of astonishment, a Liverpool jury accepted their defence that they had acted to prevent the crime of genocide. Using personal testimony, reconstruction and extracts of video evidence left in the wrecked cockpit of Hawk ZH 955, this documentary places events into a wider context of the remarkable Ploughshares Movement, and takes the British government to task on its so-called 'ethical foreign policy' of selling weapons to genocidal regimes.
