Set in 1590, young William Shakespeare is a rising playwright in the London theatre. Suffering from writer’s block, he can’t seem to get going on his latest play. Enter Lady Viola, a budding young actress with whom Shakespeare falls madly in love with. Suddenly, the words start to flow from the playwright's quill and it looks like the play will have a happy ending, at least on stage.
