This is a story about a man named Billy Jack. A man who's mission in life is to protect the helpless and downtrodden.
A half-breed Native American and ex green beret, Billy Jack finds his cause when he meets a woman who runs a progressive school named Freedom School. All kids are encouraged reguardless of their color or ethnic background to express themselves through activities such as art, theatre, and music.
