A Broker of Fragments

In 1953, Frank Olson, a scientist working to create biological weapons for America during the Korean War, died in Manhattan. His son Eric, then 9, was told that his father had committed suicide. Eric spent the next 50 years of his life watching the remainder of his family fall into disrepair only to be confronted, after the death of his mother, with evidence that his father had been secretly murdered by the C.I.A.. This story unfolds through a series of Olson home movies and interviews, as a picture develops that will not fix, but I don't think it was meant to.
