Based on the novel by Philip Roth, Indignation is a 1950s-set drama centred on a Jewish student, who is slowly coming to terms with college life. Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman) lives with his parents in Newark, New Jersey, where his father runs a butcher's shop. In order to avoid the draft for the Korean War, model student Marcus secures a scholarship to Winesburg arts college, where he falls under the spell of a fellow student called Olivia (Sarah Gadon). Her willingness to cater to Marcus' carnal desires conceals the sadness that once drove her to attempt suicide. The relationship between Marcus and Olivia intensifies and the young man clashes with Dean Caudwell (Tracy Letts), who openly questions Marcus' religious beliefs and his personal choices in a time of conflict and self-sacrifice.
