A mini-series dramatization of the controversial 1992 attack by federal agents on the Idaho home of Randy Weaver, a white seperatist. The ten-day siege, begun over a minor gun charge, resulted in the deaths of Weaver's son, wife and dog, and a U.S. Marshall. The incident caused major public outcry against the FBI and U.S. Marshals.

The outdoor scenes were filmed in northern California north of Oroville near the Concow valley. Lake Concow can be seen in several shots including the opening credits in part 2 of the movie. The family home was constructed near the intersection of Concow Rd and Rim Rd. The shot of the train crossing one bridge with another bridge above it is the Pulga bridge along hwy 70. See more »

At first, I did not want to sit through this movie. I thought that it was going to be a completely religious movie from beginning to end. I had no idea what was in store. I didn't remember any of the siege itself. I was 15 when it happened. So I went to the internet and looked it up. It was indeed a true story. One that definately should have been told. True, I didnt want to sit through 4 hours of the movie, but it really was worth it. I would definately recommend it to friends to see!
