The Great and the Good
Arthur Morgan travels to New York in the 1950s. He encounters gilded youth, the rich and eccentric, and is invited to the White House. He succeeds in meeting the great and the good. But the repercussions of unfulfilled desires and love will resurface long after Arthur has returned to France.
