In this politically charged drama, a self-absorbed film director who wants nothing other than to make films is arrested by the government and serves a long sentence. Despite that, when he emerges he still has a lovely modern apartment and his family is intact. Now that he is out of prison, he is attempting to put another film deal together and must fight the censors tooth and nail, even being arrested again at one point. However persistent he may be as a director, his disloyalty to the women in his life drives away first his long-suffering wife and then his French mistress. Once the narcissistic director's film is made, he realizes that it will never be distributed in his homeland, and that it's not likely to interest international viewers -- exactly the situation that faced this film in real life.
