The production uses dramatic readings, acted vignettes, poetry, music, and historical photos, to dramatize the last four days of the Rosenbergs’ lives through their prison letters and firsthand accounts from the Rosenbergs' sons, Robby and Michael Meeropol.

The film also tells the stories of present-day activist families the Rosenberg Fund for Children assists, and celebrates current movements for peace, environmental justice, immigrants' rights, civil liberties and other progressive struggles from efforts to end police brutality, to the fight to free all political prisoners.
