Summary

Summary

Documentary filmmaker Gregory Marquette reveals how the unrelenting greed of telecommunications giant AT&T forced gifted inventor Walter L. Shaw to turn away from his dream, and use his talents to create a "black box" that would allow mob bookies to thwart federal agents. Later, Shaw's embittered son paid the ultimate price for joining the mob in an attempt to avenge his family. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
