WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

It's 1946. Successful studio head, Samuel Baum wants to make a movie about anti-Semitism. He hires Oscar winning screenwriter and profoundly gentile, Garfield Hampson, Jr. to write the script. When he discovers that a competing studio has nearly completed the screenplay to "Gentleman's Agreement", he is desperate to be the first one out of the gate. As Samuel sees it, there's only room for one "Jew movie" a year. "What's more, it should be written by a Gentile (unlike Zanuck's writer, Moss Hart) who will depict Jews through his 100% American eyes. " He knows that his will tell the real story. With wit and wisdom, playwright, Daniel Goldfarb takes an insightful look into the heart and mind of a Jewish immigrant who has made something of himself in post-war United States. Along the way, much is revealed about what it means to be an assimilated Jew and the impact it has on Sam's thirteen year-old son, Adam, and what lies beneath the surface of both the movie mogul and, ultimately, the writer, himself.
