By Ariel Dorfman

Directed by Jake Scaltreto


Daniel Lucas, the government’s top censor, is confronted with a manuscript that threatens to expose his darkest secrets. In his quest to uncover the story’s author, he finds that not only do its words reveal the secrets of his past, but that they may also predict the details of his future. As the worlds of fiction and reality clash and combine, a nightmarish reality emerges where any one of us can be cut, recut, and redacted into oblivion, spotlighting the harsh consequences of bureaucratic control over the flow of information.
