Synopsis

An indomitable African-American actor auditioning for the role of Othello must respond to the dictates of a younger, white director who presumes to better understand Shakespeare’s iconic black character. What could possibly go wrong? This fraught audition turns into an exploration of Shakespeare, race, and America (not necessarily in that order).
