In a comfortable Chicago suburb, the advantages of life are abundant, but when a politically astute Nazi organiser selects Skokie as the site of his next rally, feelings run riot. The town’s population is 40% Jewish, many of who are survivors of the Nazi Holocaust. They see the march as a warning that those days must never be forgotten or allowed to happen again. Moderate leaders (Eli Wallach, Carl Reiner) advise the Jewish citizens to ignore the Nazis; but led by de facto spokesman Max Feldman (Danny Kaye), the men agree they must protest. This film drama spans a year and a half of legal battles and explores the very meaning of freedom in America.
