Nick Randal is a superstar actor with two Oscars to his name. He is the hottest property in Hollywood and lives the life of a hermit. He specialises in a technique called Deep Acting in order for him to ‘get into character'. This involves him becoming that person he is going to portray by revisiting where they lived and the places they went - even living and eating as they would have in their time period.
The problem with doing this, however, is that after the film is released, and after he is awarded his Oscars, these characters then take over his conscience and control him for short periods of time, causing him all kinds of problems - like getting involved in murder!
Deep Acting by Michalis Neokleous describes the internal battles of Nick Randal's mind with the historical characters he portrays and who now reside in his head. In an effort to get them out, he decides to take one more role, that of Freud, thinking he can use Freud to get them to leave. He has a problem, though, there is another person in his head, a kid, someone from his past - a past he has repressed. The other people in his head fear this kid. Why? What harm can a kid do to them? Can Nick succeed in his efforts to rid them from his head?
