Susy Hendrix is a blind Greenwich Village housewife who becomes the target of three con-men searching for a doll stuffed with heroin, which her husband Sam unwittingly transported from Canada as a favor to a woman who has since been murdered. Complicating matters, is the fact that a little girl living in an apartment upstairs has stolen the doll. Intent on retrieving the heroine, con man, Roat, leads his companion of thugs into thinking they will be rich if they find the doll. In the end, Roat turns on his companions and sets his sights on murder.

    Lawyer Abigail Gersten is brilliant, Jewish, and a First Amendment absolutist. Professor Bernard Cooper is courtly, polite and dedicated to convincing the world that the Holocaust was a Jewish hoax. When the government prosecutes him, he turns to Abby for help. Offended by censorship in any form, she takes the case, but gets quickly drawn into a moral quagmire. Opposing her is an idealistic prosecutor and a venerable Holocaust survivor who call her loyalties into question and make her confront the differences between what is legal and what is right. The conflict that ensues concerns issues of history, memory, free speech, and how the stories we tell about ourselves determine who we are.
