The Second Civil War


1h 37m 1997

Brief Synopsis

Set in the not-too-distant future, the Governor of Idaho decides to close his state's borders when a planeload of orphaned refugees from Pakistan are heading that way. Fed up with immigration policies that have transformed the nation into a tumultuous melting pot, the Governor vows to keep the American way of life intact and even threatens to secede from the Union if the federal government responds to his blockade with force. The White House responds with a 67-hour deadline for lifting the blockade. As anarchy reigns in the streets, a news service goes behind the scenes to cover what could be the news event of the century.
