Story: A thriller centered on a former Weather Underground activist who goes on the run from a journalist who has discovered his identity.


Synopsis: Sharon Solarz is nervous. Shes driving along a lonely road, lost in thought. As she goes over a hill, her car drifts a little too close to the center-divide and shes almost crushed by a truck going in the opposite direction. Rattled further, she pulls into a gas station. She looks like any another woman until cars come screeching in all around her, FBI agents begin waving their badges and a shotgun is pointed at her head. Jim Grant has made a good life for himself as a small town lawyer in Albany New York. He has managed to juggle his job and raise his 11 year old daughter Isabel after the death of his wife a few years ago. His world is turned upside down after hes approached by his old friend Billy while dropping his daughter off at school. Billy fills Jim in on Sharons arrest which took place not far from them. Billy asks if Jim will help her in any way, but Jim wants no part of it. We learn that Sharon was a former member of a radical group called the Weather Underground. The group robbed a bank way back in the late 70s and the security guard, an off duty policeman, was shot and killed in the process. Sharon has been charged with murder. Jim is suddenly under suspicion of somehow being involved. During the ensuing investigation, evidence is unearthed and connections are being made, namely by young and clever Albany Times reporter Ben Schulberg. Ben uses his local and FBI contacts and slowly begins to think that Jim was involved in the robbery and murder. But past appearances can be deceiving and as he tries to get to the bottom of it all, Jim leads Ben and the FBI on a cross-country manhunt, while trying to find the third remaining member-at-large, Mimi Lurir, so that he might convince her to come forward and prove his innocence and save his daughter
