1907: Former surgeon Tom Justice sits in a San Francisco jail on murder charges. The attorney hired to defend him is perplexed: the doctor hasn’t confessed to the crime—if there even was a crime—but why won’t he declare his innocence?
The reasons are complex, reaching back to Tom’s youth and influencing the decisions he makes about his career, friends, and loved ones. In one soul-defining moment, he makes a choice that will change his life forever.
