Summary In the 1990's, New London, Connecticut faced economic problems after a large naval base closed. When Pfizer announced plans to build a new research facility in the city, New London began planning a large-scale development in the nearby Fort Trumbull area of town that involved using the City's power of eminent domain to acquire properties in the area. Susette Kelo and some of her neighbors fought the City's efforts to take their homes, leading to an important Supreme Court decision on the proper role for eminent domain. The documentary tells the story of the case through interviews with Kelo; her lawyer Scott Bullock from the Institute for Justice; members of the Coalition to Save the Fort Trumbull Neighborhood; city lawyers Tom Londregan and Edward O'Connell; and city planners Michael Joplin and John Brooks
