It is 1988, and Saul Adler, a narcissistic young historian, has been invited to Communist East Berlin to do research. In exchange, he must publish a favorable essay about the German Democratic Republic. As a gift for his translator's sister, a Beatles fanatic who will be his host, Saul's girlfriend will shoot a photograph of him standing in the crosswalk on Abbey Road, a homage to the famous album cover. As he waits for her to arrive, he is grazed by an oncoming car, which changes the trajectory of his life. THE MAN WHO SAW EVERYTHING is about the difficulty of seeing ourselves and others clearly.
