A group of prominent Moscow doctors, most Jews, are accused of being involved in a conspiracy to murder Soviet leaders. Even the Soviet government is forced to admit that the charges are fabricated, though they will only do so after Joseph Stalin dies.

The motive for the false charges appears to be Stalin's own extreme anti-Semitism.
