In 1987, S. Brian Willson, a Vietnam veteran sat down on the railroad tracks outside the Concord Naval Weapons Station in California to protest a shipment of weapons intended to arm the Nicaraguan Contra army. Underestimating the U.S. Navy’s intolerance for peaceful protest, Willson lost both of his legs and suffered a fractured skull when the train was ordered not to stop. This is the story of one man who literally put his body on the line to dissent his country’s imperialistic nature after witnessing U.S. savagery during the Vietnam War that changed his political convictions. Realizing that his power came not from bearing arms, but from bearing the truth, Willson has become one of today’s most resolute voices against war. Including interviews with Martin Sheen, Daniel Ellsberg, Alice Walker, Ron Kovic, and narrated by Emmy Award-winner Peter Coyote, “Paying the Price for Peace is a film that will embolden all people who strive for peace.
