Van Orden v. Perry
Every day, Thomas Van Orden passed a granite monument carved with the Ten Commandments on the grounds of the Texas State Capitol in Austin. Believing that a religious text on government property violated the First Amendment, he sued the State of Texas to have it removed. Through interviews with the people involved, the documentary explores the history and context of the monument, and the story of Van Orden's journey to the U.S. Supreme Court.
