Published

on


Ruby Ridge: Randy Weaver and his wife Vicki are religious extremists who decide to seclude themselves and their children on the side of a mountain in rural Idaho. They must adjust to a new way of life, being completely off the grid and socially isolated.

After a chance altercation with one of their very few neighbors, Randy Weaver is flagged by the FBI. Agents who are also investigating other extremists from an Aryan Nation compound try to pull Randy into an undercover operation. When he refuses to cooperate, everything goes terribly wrong.

Ruby Ridge was a pivotal event in American history that would change the rules of engagement and redefine police tactics for use of deadly force. The Ruby Ridge standoff lasted 11 days.
