It is the first speculative trial drama to be produced about Lee Harvey Oswald only a few months after the assassination of John F. Kennedy along with the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald himself. The film was made in Dallas, and served as an idea of what the trial would have been like had it occurred, if Oswald hadn't been killed by Jack Ruby. In the film, the prosecution asserts Oswald committed the crime for political reasons due to his Marxist beliefs, while Oswald's attorney presents an insanity defense, claiming he suffered from untreated paranoid schizophrenia since adolescence.
