Synopsis and Character Breakdown: In 1961, Holocaust survivor Nola Lubitsch spots the man who tricked her out of hiding and into the hands of the Gestapo twenty years ago. Instead of going to the authorities with this information, she consults the elders of her local synagogue in Los Angeles. The elders form a committee, and with the help of graduate student Neil Hausner and private investigator Michelle Norris, investigate the man surreptitiously to see if he is the man they suspect him to be.
