Rosa, the rational geneticist, thinks she knows the cause of their sons death, but Ellis, unable to accept the randomness of a chance mutation, turns to genealogy for the answer. Through research and imagination, he recreates the lives of their ancestors and discovers a more likely explanation.

Ellis then tries to learn why the father he revered rejected him and Rosa after their engagement. Was it because of her race? Was it because Rosas father was a civil-rights activist in the small southern town where Elliss fathers was police chief? Was Elliss father involved in the killing of Rosas parents? Elliss recreation of that tragic time cracks the case but uncovers a secret even more threatening to his marriage to Rosa.
