Vainglorious Mordechai de Paauw is ruthless: in the years before World War II, the Dutch pharmaceutical entrepreneur is on the cutting edge of science and determined to develop the contraceptive pill... no matter what the cost.
 
Testing hormonal treatments on his female workers, and sexually exploiting them, Mordechaiís secret immoral life and his successful company are threatened by the rise of Hitler and, years later, a shocking scandal involving his brash son.
 
Will Mordechai ever find redemption, and will the women he manipulates regain control over their own bodies?
