Samantha Talbot is born blind. Her mother, Ally, searches for the cause and finds a mysterious link to a pesticide and to Worldwide Chemical. No lawyer will touch her case, until a former district attorney, David King, agrees to fight for her and Sam. Decades before Samantha’s birth, Amalia Hecht and her uncle Karl perfect a miracle pesticide that is sought by the Gestapo. They pass it secretly to an American agent. Hunted by the police, they flee Germany. At the Swiss border, Amalia befriends Rachel Wisemann, a young Jewish girl. Will their paths cross again? Ally, Samantha, and David face Worldwide Chemical in federal court in Miami, their quest frustrated by an ambitious judge, unscrupulous lawyers, and a callous opponent.
