"The man who has everything figured out is probably a fool.”  

In a sleepy Bible Belt town not too long ago, a teacher is arrested for defying state law by teaching Darwin's Theory to his class. A Presidential contender and Biblical expert leads the prosecution against “Evil-ution,” and a renowned attorney and compassionate agnostic is recruited for the defense. The towns people are suddenly thrust into a national spotlight.

A fictionalized account of the infamous Scopes “Monkey” Trial, an epic Clash of the Titans ensues in the true Trial of the Century.
