Fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford - only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village. The cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre. As acting worlds collide, Jefferson discovers some truths about himself - along with his inner Lear.
