On a Southern plantation, William Shakespeare Shakespeare holds the fate of several black slaves in his hands. Among them are the rebellious Aaron (from Titus Andronicus ) and the obedient Othello, who each have complicated relationships with Shakespeare's daughter, Judith. But a vital secret remains hidden that could untangle complex familial ties and change the course of their history.
