A psychological drama revealing for the first time the extraordinary circumstances behind the unjust murder trial of the young Jew, Philippe Halsman, who would later become the most sought-after celebrity portrait photographer of his generation. Set in 1928 Austria during the rise of fascism, the story documents the corrupt relationship between Philippe and his father, the events leading to his father’s death, and focuses a sharp but delicate eye upon the anti-Semitic atmosphere that quickly led to Philippe’s conviction.
