Synopsis
Faeture film. An old American Broadway legend living in Paris is attempting to put together a small production of Hamlet. Unfortunately, his Ophelia was exposed to radiation in a reactor accident in southern France and may not recover in time to appear. At precisely the same moment as the accident happened a rare Carpathian mushroom suddenly sprang up at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. It was harvested by a young woman who recognised its mysterious healing powers. Her boyfriend wants to use it commercially, but her brother (who is associated with the Hamlet production) wants to use it for the ailing Ophelia.
