Seating chart & directions
Henry Grunwald, a Viennese Jew who fled the Nazis, retired as the head of an ad agency to fulfill his dream of being a playwright. When he interviews a playwriting student (Adam Green) with more modern values to be his assistant, the two wage a verbal war on one another that ultimately reveals the hidden truths they each have buried deep inside. Sharp, insightful dialogue propels the exchange toward its final, touching moments where the inevitable question must be confronted: can the gap between their two worlds be bridged? This is a touching, often hilarious journey of two very different generations coming together and ultimately teaching each other the meaning of life.
