Emma Joseph is a bright, hard-working, law school graduate continuing her family’s business of fighting for progressive ideals. She founded the Joe Joseph Fund four years ago, named for her grandfather who was blacklisted during the McCarthy era for refusing to name names. A curveball comes hurdling Emma’s way, however, when she finds out that her grandfather may have been passing information to Russians while working for the US government—a fact that was hidden from her by her father for her whole life, and one that calls into question her whole ideology.
