A man will fight for his rights
5 October 1999 | by (florida) – See all my reviews

After returning from Vietnam, a soldier finds that the government wants to take his land. The battle gets really ugly and Tommy Lee Jones gives a strong performance as a man who will die rather than give up his home. This was a tv movie- too bad not many people will get to see it.
