He reads minds and confounds his doctors, lead by Dr. Nathan Gross (Derek Jacobi, The King's Speech, Gladiator). Before the war, in Berlin, Adam was an entertainer--cabaret impresario, circus owner, magician, musician--loved by audiences and Nazis alike until he finds himself in a concentration camp, confronted by Commandant Klein (Willem Dafoe, Plantoon, Spiderman). Adam survives the camp by becoming the Commandant's "dog, " entertaining him while his wife and daughter are sent off to die. Years later we find him at the Institute. One day, Adam smells something, hears a sound. "Who brought a dog in here?" he asks Gross. Gross denies there is a dog but Adam finds him--a young boy raised in a basement on a chain. Adam and the boy see and recognize each other as dogs--and their journey begins.

Niebuhr rose from a small Midwest church pulpit to become the nation's moral voice - an American conscience -during some of the most defining moments in American history.

The two form an instant connection, and through shared secrets, love interests and holiday getaways their relationship deepens to levels of unspoken intimacy.

A rare glimpse into the intriguingly complex world of professional modeling. Behind the glossy covers of Vogue and Glamour lie the rarely-discussed, uncensored stories of what models endure and sacrifice in order to become a top model. Through interviews with supermodels, photographers, agents, designers, plastic surgeons, make-up artists and psychologists, CHASING BEAUTY uncovers body image issues and the psychological effects that beauty businesses have on young women and men. The highly-demanding and oftentimes unattainable physical requirements for the position, the financial and emotional investment, and moral negotiations that sometimes become prerequisites encourage viewers to examine what is beauty, and is it worth the cost?
