American playwright Lillian Hellman recounts a story from the mid-1930s leading into WWII concerning her best childhood friend, the wealthy Julia, who was raised by her maternal grandparents. At the time of this story, Hellman is just starting her writing career, and is in a relationship with older novelist Dashiell Hammett who's also her mentor. Julia's a medical student, living in Vienna where she hoped to study under luminaries such as Sigmund Freud. Visits between Lily and Julia are infrequent due to the Nazis rising to power in Both Germany and Austria. Lily discovers that Julia has been hospitalised from beatings revived from the Nazis, due to her assisting her school colleagues. This action by Julia only strengthens her resolve towards activism against anything she sees as being socially or politically corrupt. Lily's career begins to blossom, albeit with its own obstacles. Afterwards, she's invited to attend a conference in Russia, but she plans on stopping in Vienna en route to see Julia if she is still there. In spite of her attempts to contract Julia, she not heard from herempts. Lillian learns through a friend of Julia's that she is making a request of her friend; Julia wants Lillian to smuggle $50,000 of Julia's money into Germany to help the resistance. Despite not seeing herself as a heroic-type, and despite the added personal risk of being Jewish in Nazi Germany, Lily agrees. En route, Lilian has to learn who she can and cannot trust, reading those cues incorrectly which could lead to her and Julia's demise. Lily will also learn of another request from her friend, one of a more personal nature, and as such perhaps more important to Lily to achieve.

Jake O'Neill Robards is the youngest son of two-time, Oscar-winning actor Jason Robards and producer Lois (O'Connor) Robards and the grandson of silent film actor, Jason Robards, Sr. Jake was raised in Southport, Connecticut far from Hollywood but close to New York's Broadway where during Sunday matinees he would watch from the wings as his father performed revivals of The Iceman Cometh, You Can't Take it with You, and Long Day's Journey Into Night. Jake was educated at The Greenwich Country Day School and Greens Farms Academy, where, in 8th grade, he met his future wife - Rachel. At The Hotchkiss School he was twice class president and captain of two varsity sports - soccer and sailing where they were national champions. Initially, Robards had his sights set on law school and a future in government, but his senior year at Georgetown University, where he received a BA in International Relations and a minor in French, his French professor required students to act out parts in Moliere's The School for Wives. Perhaps it was inevitable with his up-bringing, but it was at that moment, that Robards fell in love with acting. After college, Robards briefly attended The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, but he soon focused on New York independent theater playing a wide range of roles: an Australian drug smuggler in Beautiful Souls, a soldier suffering from PTSD in At War and Home Front, a suicidal loaner in The Chechov Dreams, young Adolf Hitler in 5 O'Clock, and most recently starring as a JFK Jr.-like candidate in the Off-Broadway political drama, Promising, which is currently being developed into a film. For years, Jake has been successful at garnering a massive voice-over career, voicing numerous national campaigns including: L'Oreal, Ensure, Robitussin, Dunkin' Doughnuts, USA Network, Advil, and Domino's Pizza to name a few. Robards performed on Broadway with Paul Newman and Jane Curtin in Our Town, which was also filmed for Showtime. Other film & television credits include an assistant ME on Law & Order SVU, lead roles in the unsung independent features Alto and Honeysuckle, and roles in Lucky Them and Somebody's Hero. In late 2016 he moved to Los Angeles to focus more on film and television and immediately booked a recurring role on Showtime's Billions playing Hedge Fund Manager, Michael Arendt. He also will be in the pilot episode of Ryan Murphy's, Feud playing alongside Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange. He guest stars this season on ABC's Quantico alongside Priyanka Chopra and Blair Underwood. Robards' love of theater extends to his duties as a Board member of Westport Country Playhouse in Westport, Connecticut. His other charity work includes his avid support of NextStep Fitness - a non-profit which provides workout facilities for people living with paralysis. To help them raise over $100,000, last fall Robards cycled from Denver to Los Angeles on the Snow2Sand ride. Robards was married in 2006 to Rachel Bell. They have one son, Jake Jr.
