Illusion synopsis

Donald Baines (Kirk Douglas) is a legendary filmmaker in the twilight of his life. Slowly dying, he watches his life's work in a private screening room, but he is haunted by the sacrifices he made for his art, and especially by the rejection of Christopher (Michael Goorjian), his illegitimate son. One night, the ghost of a long-dead movie editor transports Donald to an old theater, where he sees three visions of his son's life and gets a final chance to make a change in that life.
