The film documents their four-year journey around the world by the filmmakers: to Elsinore in Denmark, London’s Globe theatre, a prison in Berlin, taking in Hollywood as they go.

Along the road they consult a whole host of helpful luminaries, often going to great lengths to secure interviews with some of the greatest Shakespearean actors of all time. These include Ian McKellen, Judi Dench, Derek Jacobi, Mark Rylance, Tom Hiddleston, Ewan McGregor and many more besides.
