With nothing less than the foundation of our democracy hanging in the balance, a tight-knit group of lawyers travel to Cumberland County, NC—poster child for racially motivated voter suppression in the lead-up to the 2016 election—to protect the vote and show that the dedicated efforts of individual citizens can turn the tide of eroding election ethics. A documentary remarkably of the moment— as efforts to suppress voting continue to make the news—Capturing the Flag showcases the struggle to protect this essential right for all American citizens.
