Benny Silverman, a retired, successful actor, seems to have surmounted the bitter time in his life when his good friend Leo Greshen “named” him in front of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Benny’s flourishing career was nearly destroyed, and his comeback was slow and painful. The two men haven’t spoken since. But they are forced to deal with each other 30 years after the fact, when Benny’s daughter wins a career-making role in a hot new play Leo is directing.

Hector Elizondo as Leo Greshen
