New York City, 1999. Three generations of a loving and radically leftist family gather to celebrate the law school graduation of its youngest torchbearer, Emma (Diana Buirski). But news of a forthcoming book with shocking revelations about late Grandpa Joe - a famously blacklisted Marxist - casts a pall on the party and throws the family into an intergenerational tailspin. Shaken to the core, Emma must reconcile her fierce politics and family loyalty to decide if the end ever justifies the means. Heads butt and relationships fracture in this insightful, moving and often-humorous family portrait from rising American playwright Amy Herzog.
