Description
Summary:This star-studded drama follows the story of Adam Stein (Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Park, The Grand Budapest Hotel), a charismatic patient at a mental institution for Holocaust survivors in Israel, in 1961. He reads minds and confounds his doctors, lead by Dr. Nathan Gross (Derek Jacobi, The King's Speech, Gladiator). Before the war, in Berlin, Adam was an entertainer--cabaret impresario, circus owner, magician, musician--loved by audiences and Nazis alike until he finds himself in a concentration camp, confronted by Commandant Klein (Willem Dafoe, Plantoon, Spiderman). Adam survives the camp by becoming the Commandant's "dog," entertaining him while his wife and daughter are sent off to die. Years later we find him at the Institute. One day, Adam smells something, hears a sound. "Who brought a dog in here?" he asks Gross. Gross denies there is a dog but Adam finds him--a young boy raised in a basement on a chain. Adam and the boy see and recognize each other as dogs--and their journey begins.
