30 years after the Call for assassination pronounced by Ayatollah Khomeini against the author of The Satanic Verses, director William Karel draws an intimate portrait of one of today's most free-minded and significant writer, four times recipient of the Booker Prize. Based on rarely seen personal and historical archives and exclusive interviews recently shot in his house in New York, the film revisits Rushdie’s life and literary work and questions the place of Novelists in the Era of fake news. From his youth in multicultural Bombay and his studies in Cambridge, to his 15 years of forced hiding after the fatwa, Rushdie sets his sharp eye on Trump’s America in his recently released book: The Golden House.
