Powerful Mr. Posner would love nothing more than to shut down the hippie school on the nearby Indian reservation, and keep the undesirables from the city streets, but because of the reservation he has no authority. But he gets his chance when the daughter of the towns deputy goes missing (after a beating by her deputy dad) and is suspected of being hidden at the Freedom School. The only thing standing between the town vigilantes and the school is Billy Jack, a half-breed indian who guards the reservation, those who live on it, and Jean Roberts, the schools headmistress.Billy Jack was the largest grossing independent fi lm in history until The Blair Witch Project. It remains a landmark independent fi lm that focused on the most emotional themes of the time anti-establishment, two-sided justice, racial segregation and prejudice, and social ideals. It inspired countless copycats.
