About this product
- DescriptionThis is a story of Oldport, a historic, idyllic Norman Rockwell type village on the rth shore of Long Island. The current residents are committed to preserving the idealized story book image and maintaining the status quo. When a local resident purchases a rundown landmark waterfront Inn and seeks village permission to replace it with a contemporary boutique hotel he meets fierce opposition from a united group of entrenched senior residents. The result is a classic struggle of progress versus preservation. Before the Village Board renders its decision on the new owners request for a rezoning permit, the revered Mayor is murdered in cold blood. The Mayor's death turns the village inside out. Ultimately, the police in a rush to solve the high profile murder case disregard evidence that incriminates several other suspects and arrest a young local builder for the crime. He is put on trial for murder in the first degree and faces the death penalty. Oldport is being twisted and turned by a 21st century sociological tornado that exposes a historic village in crisis. A pattern of racial discrimination, sexual harassment, marital infidelity, embezzlement and political corruption surface and Oldport, the model American village teeters on the precipice of destruction.
