Storyline

A daughter tells the controversial choices that her father, a Jewish artist from Poland, made in order to survive the Holocaust. Eddie Vitch (née Ignaze Levkovitch) was a talented caricature and mime artist. His iconic drawings of the silver screen's biggest stars at the Brown Derby in Los Angeles became part of the Hollywood lore. In the 1930's US immigration deported him back to Europe where his mime act became a huge success. When Germany invaded France in 1940, he was performing in Paris. The Nazi officers who saw him on stage sent him to perform in Germany by orders of the Propaganda department. Throughout the war he performed in front of the Nazi elite and the Gestapo in Germany's most prestigious theaters. His documents identified him as "Levkovitch," a recognizably Jewish name. Was he hiding in plain sight or did the Nazis protect him? As Vitch's mysterious life is revealed, it becomes clear that what happened decades ago still affects his family today.
