The story is told in flashbacks set during a 1947 testimony William Moulton Marston gives to representatives of the Child Study Association of America. William and his wife Elizabeth are teachers at Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges in 1928, when William hires a new teaching assistant named Olive Byrne, the niece of Margaret Sanger. Elizabeth notes William's interest in having sex with Olive (despite her already being engaged), initially permitting William to pursue his interest but then crudely warning Olive not to have an affair with him. Nonetheless, Olive stays on as a teaching assistant, aiding in the Marstons' work in inventing the lie detector and conducting research on William's DISC theory on human interaction. A final test of the detector leads to Olive revealing that she has fallen in love with both William and Elizabeth. She ultimately decides to break her engagement to go live with the Marstons. But soon after, the Marstons get fired. Read more on Wikipedia.
