The first feature documentary about the world-famous mime artist Marcel Marceau. With gestures and facial expressions alone he touched and inspired people around the globe. But the tragic background of his mime acts has long remained hidden. As a teenager, Marceau had to witness his Jewish father being deported and killed by the Nazis. He himself joined the Resistance and secretly smuggled Jewish children across the border. Marceau used silence to survive. From this he created a unique art form that his family and companions continue today.
