When England's aging King Lear renounces his throne to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, treachery, madness and murder soon follow.

Meanwhile, evil brews at the Gloucester castle as Edgar falls victim to his brother's deception. As battle lines are drawn and backs are stabbed, Lear rages against a fearsome storm
