What Is the Story of The Revisionist?
The Revisionist is the story of a young science fiction writer named David, who is suffering from writer's block. David journeys to Szczecin, Poland, to stay with his septuagenarian second cousin, Maria, a widowed Holocaust survivor. David expects the change of environment will help him to unblock his creative energy and give him space to revise his new novel. However, the lonely Maria is thrilled by the visit and believes he's staying on to connect with her. As their bond grows, Maria tells David a profound secret about her past that challenges their relationship and teaches them both something about what it means to be family.
