The documentary features a spectacular four-minute drone tour of the Capitol with glimpses of the House floor, Senate floor, and Oklahoma Supreme Court, providing rare views of the building’s interior and exterior. It walks through the history of the Capitol, the importance of the building, the years-long restoration process, its resilience over the decades, and more. Interviewees include Trait Thompson, executive director of the OHS, former project manager for the Oklahoma Capitol Restoration Project, and author of The Oklahoma State Capitol; Dr. Bob Blackburn, former executive director of the OHS; former governors including George Nigh and Frank Keating; and Marilyn Luper Hildreth, daughter of Civil Rights leader Clara Luper. The piece is narrated by John Erling, a former Tulsa radio host inducted into the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame and the founder of the Voices of Oklahoma project.

The documentary was directed by Oklahoma native Bryan Beasley and produced with support from the Inasmuch Foundation.
