Synopsis: 

Charles Darwin’s “Origin of Species” provides a scientific outlook into the evolution of man. How man is just another animal which has managed to survive and evolve because of one thing.

1926, HILLSBORO, OREGAN, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Bertram Cates is awaiting trial for imparting Mr. Darwin’s theory to his biology students as it is against the law to teach anything against the words of the Holy Bible in this small town.  Matthew Harrison Brady leads the crusade against, with the support of the old and orthodox of the town. Drawing the deserved attention of the press, a sharp reporter, E.K. Hornbeck arrives and to the utter disappointment of the crowd announces that a prominent lawyer named Henry Drummond will represent the defence. A fanatic mob, a biased judge and a favoured opponent, all stack up the odds against Drummond, who must do everything he can to protect that one thing which makes man a better animal: the right to think.
