The internationally best-selling novel by Heather Morris recounts the real-life meeting and lives of Holocaust survivors Lale Sokolov and Gita Furman in the midst of one of the most abhorrent events in human history. Morris met and interviewed Sokolov in 2003, resulting in the 2018 publication of his fictionalised story.

Harvey Keitel, known for his collaborations with Quentin Tarantino in Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, will play the modern day Sokolov, with Yellowjacket’s Melanie Lynskey interviewing him as novice author Heather Morris.
