Based on the true story of Henry and Claire, a young couple who meet in Baltimore in 1914. Henry, a Jew, and Claire, a Catholic, marry in defiance of their parents' disapproval of their relationship. While their marriage remains secret, however, Claire's pregnancy cannot be hidden.

Alfred Chaswick, researching his family's roots in the late 20th century in London, arrives at a genealogical mystery when he finds Henry in his family tree. Surviving family members' stories do not match with the genealogical record, and Alfred soon wishes he had let things lie.
