Summary, etc.:
King Lear is ready to turn his realm over to his three daughters. His plan is simple: give the biggest piece to the daughter who loves him most. But honeyed words and hubris blind Lear to the true motives of those around him, plunging king and kingdom into a hell of treachery, madness, and unspeakable acts, with consequences that reveal the worst and best in human nature.
