Two women who meet by chance make a pact to fix their unhappy lives:
they will each do what the other one says. But one of them has a secret.
She knows her husband is sleeping with the younger woman. Madelyn's
plan backfires when Lucy, an aspiring actress, orders her to play King
Lear in a very amateur production, with Lucy playing the Fool. Madelyn's
life is transformed in unexpected ways as, like Lear, she struggles
with matters of mortality and betrayal, loyalty and love.
