In 1999, the family of the late Joe Joseph gathers to celebrate his granddaughter’s graduation from law school. Emma, to the family’s great pride, has already begun a legal defense fund inspired by his legacy as a Jewish-American Marxist who was blacklisted for refusing to name names in the 1940s. But when a new book brings the past into question, how can she move forward?
