Synopsis

Widowed librarian Alicia Hull becomes the center of a McCarthyist firestorm when she refuses to remove from her library 'The Communist Dream,' a book seen by her town council as incendiary anti-American propaganda. Condemned at a town meeting by her former assistant Martha Lockridge and Martha's opportunist attorney boyfriend, Paul Duncan, the principled Alicia chooses the moral high ground even as she must endure the town's oppressive rancor.
