This Nova special takes viewers beyond the headlines of the court decisions and through interviews with key players in the case, including scientists, Dover parents, teachers, and town officials, it shows how this wasn't just a court case that would have serious implications for the future of science education in America and the separation of church and state, it literally pitted "friend against friend, and neighbor against neighbor" within the small community that serves as a microcosm of an America still divided over evolution.
