SYNOPSIS

An epic story of one American family whose careers brought them to the forefront of some of the most dramatic events of the last hundred years. Henry Morgenthau Senior as United States Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, Henry Morgenthau Junior as United States Secretary of Treasury under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Robert M. Morgenthau as District Attorney of New York County for over 30 years reveal new perspectives on the social and political shifts in twentieth century history. From fighting for international action against the genocide of Armenians on the cusp of WWI, through the efforts to rescue Jews during the Holocaust despite American political obstruction, and on to the struggle to reduce street crime and pioneer the prosecution of white collar corruption in the financial capital of the world, New York City, the trajectory of the three Morgenthau generations epitomizes the American experience and the continual fight for justice.
