Two highly talented and innovative directors – filmdom’s Jean-Luc Godard and the theatre world’s Peter Sellars – join forces in this unusual slant on Shakespeare’s King Lear.

The film is set some time after Chernobyl has wiped everything out, and the world is trying to set itself right again. William Shakespeare Jr. the Fifth (Peter Sellars) is faced with the task of restoring his famed ancestor’s lost works.
