Gisella Perl (Christine Lahti), a Jewish-Romanian gynecologist from Sighetu, Romania, testifies before an Immigration & Naturalization Service (INS) review board consisting of three men (Bruce Davison, Richard Crenna, and Beau Bridges). Perl is seeking to be granted citizenship after passing the New York State Medical Licensing Board examinations, wishing to begin practicing in New York. She recounts her early life when she aspired to be a doctor despite the admonishments of her father, her time practicing as a gynecologist before the German invasion, and her experiences as prisoner #25404, where she provided what medical care she could to fellow prisoners. Her most controversial actions included providing late-term abortions to pregnant women in order to save their lives. These pregnant women would otherwise have been killed immediately or subjected to the torture of horrific "medical" experiments.

Rongé par la pauvreté, il s'isole du reste du monde. Alors qu'il vend son dernier bien, la montre de son père, à une usurière, une idée lui vient à l'esprit : un meurtre est-il moralement tolérable s'il conduit à une amélioration de la condition humaine ? Il a décidé d'assassiner l'usurière depuis quelque temps, mais son plan ne se déroule pas comme prévu et il commet un double meurtre. Pris de remords et de culpabilité, il se rend compte qu'il ne peut être pardonné et qu'il ne sera jamais un grand homme, comme il l'espère tant. Raskolnikov passe du crime au châtiment.
