Resumen:

Indignation : Our official movie tie-in edition of Philip Roth's bestselling contemporary classic: a powerful tale of youth, ambition, love, and fate set on an Ohio college campus in 1951 as the Korean War rages halfway across the globe.

Ohio, 1951: Marcus Messner, an intense and studious young man, begins his sophomore year at Winesburg College. A staunch atheist from the Jewish enclave of Newark, New Jersey, he in many ways feels alienated from Winesburg's conservative Christian campus, where weekly chapel attendance is a requirement for graduation. And why is he there and not at the local Newark college where he originally enrolled? Because his father, the sturdy neighbourhood kosher butcher, seems to have gone mad--mad with fear of the dangers he sees in every corner for his beloved boy as his friends' sons go off to Korea and fail to return home. Even as Marcus tries to find focus at Winesburg, when a beautiful, troubled coed named Olivia Hutton steals his heart and the overbearing dean begins sparring with him about his lack of religion, his life is set on a path from which there is no turning back.
