You are a Hollywood screenwriter. It is 1947, and you have just been called before the House Un-American Activities Committee to testify about communism in Hollywood. In the 1930s, you attended a few Communist Party meetings. After learning more about communist ideology and about abuses in the Soviet Union, you long ago abandoned any interest in communism. In fact you consider yourself firmly anti-communist. But now the committee wants you to name the names of the people you saw at those Communist Party meetings nearly two decades ago. A few of these people are now your friends. And you have already seen what happens to anyone who is identified as a communist before the committee: They have been publicly vilified by the committee and blacklisted by the motion picture industry. But if you don't cooperate, you could face the same fate. What do you do?
