WHERE'S MY ROY COHN?
Roy M. Cohn would have been but a bold footnote to American history, most

is to help light the fires of cultural recognition; the film is intended to
elucidate and motivate
people to act now and to reject the darkest impulses and currents of the
American psyche before
they overwhelm us.
