    In 1980, Molly Rush, a Pittsburgh housewife and mother of six, walked into a G.E. plant and took a hammer to the nose cone of a nuclear warhead in protest of the buildup of our nuclear arsenal. She and her fellow activists went to trial to sound the alarm, and the world was pulled back from the brink of nuclear annihilation for the time being. Told with humor and love, Molly’s Hammer shines a light on how the choice of ordinary people to take action is what is needed to save our world.

    Two men of honor both claim the right to Norway’s crown, but wily Bishop Nicholas stymies their dreams, pursuing his own mysterious ends.
