This documentary follows photojournalist Lou Dematteis as he searches for the story of his late father, the influential Italian American crime fighter and jurist Louis B. Dematteis, and examines their rocky personal relationship. District Attorney and Judge Louis B. Dematteis fought organized crime in northern California in the 1940s and '50s and gave Sandra Day O'Connor (interviewed in the film) her first job as a lawyer when no one was hiring women. The film moves from Italy and Ellis Island to California and the San Francisco Bay Area with its story of immigrants, family, justice and healing.
