Free love. The Vietnam War. Women's Lib. In the 1960s, in an America still emerging from the paranoia of the McCarthy era, these issues made regular headlines. For Sophie Hearn and Steve Elwood it was all part of growing up.

The Wire Recorder is a love story that chronicles the coming-of-age of two baby boomers and childhood playmates, manic-depressive Sophie and quirky, awkward Steve, who part, reunite, and part again across the decades of the mid-to-late twentieth century. As they grow into adulthood, separately and together, they both affect and are affected by the events of those turbulent times. But through it all, ever-lurking in the background, is the specter of the formative event of Sophie's early years: her father's refusal to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee and subsequent blacklisting from his career as a Hollywood screenwriter. But even Sophie doesn't know the whole story, and the truth may change her forever.

At heart The Wire Recorder is a story about injustice, and the courage it takes to stand up for what's right.
