Joe Keller is a businessman. During the war his factory made aircraft parts for the Army Air Corps. Some of the parts turned out to be defective, resulting in the deaths of several American pilots and their crew. There was a trial and Joe Keller and his manager went to prison. But Joe served a much shorter sentence since most of the blame was put on the shoulders of his manager. Joe’s son Chris (Michael Navarra) and his wife Kate (Sharon Lockwood) stand by Joe’s innocence as does Joe’s manager’s daughter and son, Ann Deever (Alexandra Matthew) and George Deever (Michael Wiles). But as the drama unfolds so unfolds many layers of self-deception culminating in a revelation of what really happened to Joe’s other son who was listed as missing in action during the war.
Directed by Hector Correa, this excellent subtle drama makes us question our own selves and how easy it is to believe what we want to believe instead of facing a much harsher reality.
