When art and politics collide, no one ever really wins. In 1969, a tawdry book called "The Seven Minutes" is published and put on bookshelves all over the country. It is definitely a book for adults only and it is marketed that way to the public. Bookstores that sell the book are taking a huge risk and could wind up in big trouble. A small town book clerk finds out just how serious the movement against the book is when he is arrested for selling the book. His arrest is actually a political ploy to help a politician look good for the voting public, but the trial soon becomes more than anyone had bargained for. The book clerk goes on trial for selling pornography and the politician's courtroom connections instantly go to work trying to make a strong example out of the clerk. But problems arise when an air of mystery starts to surround the book and creates confusion in the court case. The politician wants to make an example of everyone involved in the book. But when his investigators start digging deeper into the secrets behind the book, they start to find out things that may be better left undiscovered.
