Summary
An examination of Bertolt Brecht's "Mother Courage and her children," and the political philosophy the play represents. Meryl Streep, preparing for The Public Theater's 2006 production of Brecht's anti-war play, allows a camera crew to document her rehearsal process and interest in the work. Moreover, the life and times of Brecht himself are followed, most notably the playwright's escape from Nazi Germany, subsequent exile, testimony to the House Un-American Activities Committee, and his eventual return to the country where the play was first staged. Along with backstage scenes and discussion by theatre notables such as Tony Kushner and Streep's costar Kevin Kline, the documentary seeks to depict the history and inspirations underlying the play's themes
