In 1934 Berlin on the eve of the Nazi incursion, Max, a grifter and his lover Rudy begin a nightmare odyssey through Nazi Germany. Ranked lower on the human scale than Jews, the men as avowed homosexuals, flee. Max hopes to survive the death camps but it is not to be. Richard Gere created the role of Max on Broadway.
