Apologia is described as follows: "You do not mess with Kristin Miller (Channing). In the 1960s, she was a radical activist and political protester. Now a celebrated art historian, the publication of her memoir threatens to split her family apart. But Kristin has never been one to shy away from a fight. Apologia is a passionate, human, and humorous clash of generations and beliefs — a lively look at yesterday's rebels living in today's reality."

Apologia is directed by Daniel Aukin and written by Alexi Kaye Campbell.
