Dorottya is an aspiring Hungarian actress who dreams of fame on the English stage. When she gets a job as the carer to legendary Shakespearean actor Sir Michael Gifford, who is suffering from Parkinson’s disease, she hopes to become his acting pupil but his cantankerous behaviour seems to have ruined her plans until an impromptu exchange from ‘Hamlet’ reveals a mutual love of Shakespeare that helps to gradually change the course of their relationship.
