The trial and execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg during the height of the Cold War shook America to it's core. And in light of the stranglehold Senator Joe McCarthy's red scare propaganda had on the nation, a true reflection of Julius and Ethel never surfaced during this volatile period. Now fifty years later, their granddaughter, Ivy Meeropol, goes on an exhaustive quest to find the "true" Rosenbergs, and to also answer the question that has haunted her family to this day: What drove the Rosenbergs to sacrifice their lives and jeopardize the future of their children?
