Plot Summary
This alternative version of history begins in 1964, with Lee Harvey Oswald (John Pleshette) well into what the media has dubbed "the trial of the century." The assassination of President Kennedy is shown in a series of flashbacks, while in the present two lawyers duke it out in the courtroom. The prosecutor is the caustic and manipulative Anson "Kip" Roberts (Ben Gazzara), who tries to break Oswald despite the best efforts of defense attorney Matt Weldon (Lorne Greene).
