Through photos, press articles and movie posters, Lilan Purdom recounts the tempestuous career of her father, the English actor Edmund Purdom, rising star of the American cinema in the 50’s and who, after leaving wife and children and causing a scandal in the American press, went into exile in Italy. He will become one of the heroes of Italian B cinema. Dramatically separated from their parents, Lilan Purdom and her sister will go to live with their grandmother in France. It is exile for all. In this story, the absence will be more treacherous than death and more difficult to overcome.
