When George Lewis, a young movie director with a blossoming career, visits the Chipperfield archive he finds the rushes of the last movie by his personal hero, a maverick Russian filmmaker. The Russian, a charismatic dictator of a director, had defected to the UK in the late 1950s. His film "The Graven Idol" was abandoned when he was murdered by lead actor Harry Weathers. George gets the support of a Hollywood studio and, with the help of a crew lead by Producer Emily and Editor Kate, starts to reconstruct "The Graven Idol".

In doing so, a closeness ... Written by Guy Ducker
