Isaac Geldhart is a Holocaust survivor who, overcome by grief at the recent death of his wife, seems determined to run his publishing firm into the ground by printing books that have no hope of financial success.

The resulting crisis involves Isaac's other two children, his daughter Sarah and his dying son Martin.
