A small-town nurse named Susette Kelo emerges as the reluctant leader
of her working-class neighbors in their struggle to save their homes
from political and corporate interests bent on seizing the land and
handing it over to Pfizer Corporation. Susette's battle goes all the way
to the US Supreme Court and the controversial 5-4 decision in Kelo vs.
City of New London gave government officials the power to bulldoze a
neighborhood for the benefit of a multibillion-dollar corporation. The
decision outraged Americans across the political spectrum, and that
passion fueled reforms that helped curb eminent domain abuse.
