When thirty-two-year-old actor Gregor Collins reluctantly interviewed for a job one morning as a caregiver more out of a favor to a friend - he had no idea his life was about to change forever.

Seconds into the chance meeting in 2008 with, it would turn out, a world-renowned Holocaust refugee named Maria Altmann, sparks flew, and it already felt as if they had known each other their entire lives; Collins was almost instantaneously transformed from a self-absorbed artist to an adoring caregiver.

Gregor offers us a personal and unprecedented look at Maria over the three intimate years he cared for her - her thrilling escape from the Nazis, her fight and subsequent win in the landmark Supreme Court Case to return original Gustav Klimt artwork that belonged to her family in Austria, and the extraordinary people she met along the way. But the real heart of the story goes beyond mere historical fact.

Through a raw and honest portrayal of their unlikely and unbreakable bond, imbued with humorous, candid anecdotes about his mercurial relationship with Hollywood, Gregor takes us on a deeply emotional journey of how he opened up his heart to a 92-year-old woman in need - and in turn experienced the love he had been searching for his entire life.
