The year is 1967, and Judge Francis Biddle is a cantankerous patrician in need of an assistant. An eminent former Attorney General and Chief Judge of the American Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, Biddle is trying to complete his memoirs, but has had numerous female aides quit. Enter Joanna McClelland Glass, a feisty young Canadian writer who fearlessly matches him wit for wit.
Trying is a touching portrait of generational reconciliation, told with grace and humor, that will take audiences on a journey of reflection on what constitutes a life well-lived.
Featuring Rich Holman as Judge Biddle.
