It is an individual story that illustrates a particular and important moment in American history. It speaks on
civil rights issues, the fight against lynching in the 1930’s, the Spanish Civil War and the black-list of the McCarthy period.
In the film Janet Ades, his daughter, examines her father's legacy. While she looks up to her father, admiring his wisdom, his generosity and his world outlook, she also questions his ideology, it's implementation and her father's involvement with the Communist Party.
