It's the summer of 1934, and Carmel is abuzz with rumors concerning a local club preaching that the Communist doctrine can solve the woes of the bad economy. In San Francisco, striking longshoremen, led by Communist-leaning agitators, are tying up deliveries and causing Carmel businesses to suffer without products on their shelves.
