This drama centers on the fight for certain post-Prohibitionist groups to gain total control over the liquor industry. Much of the tale is focused upon a family endeavoring to keep their little brewery. Their tiny beer- making operation was first jeopardized by the racketeers they refused to join. Film, history and sports buffs should keep an ear out for a continuity glitch in the story. In a Prohibition speakeasy, a radio plays the broadcast of the landmark Jess Willard-Jack Dempsey fight. Actually the fight occurred before Prohibition was in effect.
