Synopsis
Feature film following five characters over 24 hours on a fall day in New York City. The film opens with Diana (Close), a famous actress, giving a master class in Shakespeare to a group of Juilliard drama students acting Macbeth, in which she laments the lack of passion she sees in their performances and, more broadly, in the world she inhabits.
