Synopsis

Tormented in a World War II death camp by a sadistic Nazi officer (Willem Dafoe) Adam (Jeff Goldblum) spends the next 15 years hidden away in a remote experimental insane asylum with fellow Holocaust victims. Clinging to the remains of his sanity, he uses his amazing magic and comic skills to entertain the residents and develops a relationship with an attractive nurse. But only when he reaches out to a mentally scarred young boy does he begin to confront his own pain and guilt. Director Paul Schrader fashions an extraordinary testament to the fierce resilience of the human spirit.
