Synopsis
Ben Kline is an American television star and a "bankable name" who is cast to portray the Hungarian writer and World War II hero Miklos Radnoti, whose journal of poems was found with his body, buried in one of Hungary's mass graves. Kline is the son of a Holocaust survivor and has long resented his father's refusal to speak about the war. Now given the opportunity to play the role of a hero, but faced with the reality of a victim, the boundaries between truth and illusion begin to blur. Kline's idea of resistance begins to clash with his director, who rejects his impulses to fight back as unrealistic. How will Kline fulfill his role as Radnoti and what kind of legacy will he leave in the minds of the audience, who may come to know the Holocaust only by what they see in the movies?
