Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Zbigniew Zapassiewiewicz stars in The Baritone (Baryton) The world-renowned title character magnanimously promises to honor his home town with a concert. He arrives with his entourage, including his faithless wife and backstabbing manager. As he prepares to perform, all those around him formulate their own plans to exploit their host's fame and fortune. And then, as the appointed hour approaches, the Baritone loses his voice. It's amazing how quickly leeches scurry away when their blood source dries up. Set in the early 1930s, The Baritone has as much to say about the manners and mores of Polish life of that era as it does about its fictional protagonist.
