Robert Meeropol unravels the truth about his parents', Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, conviction and execution for alleged espionage, giving atomic bomb information to the Soviet Union. Robert backs the recently released AP story that trial testimony in which Ethel's brother, David Greenglass, implicated Ethel in the atomic bomb spy case, contradicted his earlier statement to a grand jury where he emphatically stated Ethel was never involved.

There is evidence that David Greenglass and his wife, Ruth, lied to save their own necks.

Meeropol admits there are some gray areas with his parents. They were active members of the Communist Party, who believed in making the world a better place. His father helped champion the world's working class, which then was represented by the Soviet Union that was defeating Nazism. His mother was not involved, but she supported his father. Meeropol concludes that if the only people you support are people who are perfect, then you are going to end up supporting no one.

Meeropol also explains "closure" is an overused word, the execution of any living being does not really give "closure," and life is a continuing process -- "We all live with all of our experiences all of the time."
