Synopsis

Holocaust survivor Isaac Geldhart is a venomously witty publisher who would rather sink his efforts into a six-volume history of Nazi medical experiments than publish anything remotely commercial. When his son Aaron, a partner in the firm, tries to convince him to publish a potential best seller, Isaac refuses to even consider the possibilty. Frustrated by his father's obstinence, Aaron enlists the help of his siblings: Sarah, a quirky actress, and Martin, a sensitive teacher. Until now, Sarah and Martin have stayed out of such matters. But when their father's stubbornness puts the firm on the brink of bankruptcy, they join their brother in a determined effort to save the family business.
