Adam Stein (Jeff Goldblum) was a top Jewish entertainer in pre World War II Berlin - cabaret impresario, circus owner, magician, musician--loved by audiences of all backgrounds - until he finds himself in a concentration camp, run by Commandant Klein. Adam survives the camp by becoming the Commandant's "dog", entertaining him while his own wife and daughter are sent off to die. Years later Adam is in a mental institution for survivors of Holocaust. One day, Adam smells something, hears a sound. "Who brought a dog in here?" he asks Dr. 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. Adam Resurrected is the story of a man who once was a dog who meets a dog who once was a boy.
