Los Angeles, 1928. A single mother returns from work to find her nine-year-old son gone.

She calls the LAPD to initiate a search. Five months later, a boy is found in Illinois who fits the description; he says he's her son.

To fanfare and photos, the LAPD reunite mother and son, but she insists he's not her boy.

The cops dismiss her as a hysterical liar. When she joins a minister in his public criticism of the police, they in turn use government power to silence and intimidate her.
