At forty-one years of age, University of Chicago Associate Professor Robert Bradford finds himself trapped in a world not of his own making. Manipulated into pursuing an academic career by a domineering mother, emasculated by the financial success of his wife, and pressured by the university to publish, his discontent grows. Seeking answers for the perplexities in his life, Bradford reexamines his existence and engages in an extramarital affair, pushing himself further and further away from his UC colleagues and his Wicker Park family. Unable to connect with his creative core and believing he is powerless to break away from his past, Professor Bradford compromises his principles in order to fulfill the demands of publish or perish. In the end, the reckless compromise costs him his life, and sends his wife and his student lover on a common mission to uncover the mystery of who killed Professor Robert Bradford.
