In 1921, German director F. W. Murnau takes his cast and crew on-location in Czechoslovakia to shoot ''Nosferatu'', an unauthorized version of Bram Stoker's novel ''Dracula''. Murnau keeps his team in the dark about their schedule and the actor playing the vampire Count Orlok. It is left to the film's other main actor, Gustav von Wangenheim, to explain that the lead is an obscure German people theater performer named Max Schreck, who is a character actor. To involve himself fully in his role, Schreck will only appear amongst the cast and crew in makeup, and will never break character.
