Plot

Plagued with debt, writer's block, and fallen far past deadline for his latest play, it seems like things can't get much worse for young William Shakespeare. Then Will meets Viola, a young lady masquerading as a man to get a part in his play, and it's love at first sight! Inspired by his new romance, Will sets feverishly to work on his play, determined to write the greatest love story ever told-"Romeo and Juliet"!
