This film documents the life, career, and assassination of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay person elected to public office in San Francisco. Milk was shot to death, along with mayor George Moscone, by city supervisor Dan White on November 22, 1978 (White was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and was paroled in 1985). It examines Milk's life leading up to his death, his successful efforts to politically represent San Francisco's gay community, and the city's reaction to the assassinations through extensive news footage and personal recollections.
