Trying takes place in 1967 and centers around the internationally known Francis Biddle, Attorney General under President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Chief Judge of the Nuremberg trials, who is trying to put his life in order before he dies. At times both charming and cantankerous, he struggles with the inevitability of his age and failing health. Meanwhile, his wife has forced upon him an eager, young secretary named Sarah. This story illustrates how two strangers, at two dramatically different places in their lives, can unexpectedly and forever influence each other.
