With film school equipment Laszlo Kovacs and Vilmos Zsigmond shoot the Soviet crackdown of the 1956 Hungarian Revolt. As refugees they struggle working in the underbelly of Hollywood until finally breaking into the mainstream with their pivotal contribution to cinema in films like Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, Paper Moon, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, Scarecrow, Frances, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and The Deer Hunter. NO SUBTITLES NECESSARY features interviews with Karen Black, Peter Bogdanovich, Sandra Bullock, Richard Donner, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Ellen Kuras, ASC, Tatum O'Neal, Bob Rafelson, Vittorio Storaro, AIC, ASC, Jon Voight, Haskell Wexler, ASC, John Williams and Sharon Stone. Their conversations are woven with awe inspiring clips from the memorable films Kovacs and Zsigmond shot. However, their profound friendship forged in adversity is perhaps the greater story. This intimate portrait of two giants of modern filmmaking and their deep bond of brotherhood transcends every imaginable boundary. Two heroes. One road.
