Jefferson Steel (Burt Reynolds) is an ageing Hollywood action hero. Under pressure from his client, Jefferson's incompetent LA agent stumbles upon the perfect role: a prestige run in the British theatre playing King Lear at Stratford. However, instead of a leading role in a Royal Shakespeare Company production at Stratford-upon-Avon, Jefferson has committed to star as King Lear for an amateur dramatic society in Stratford St John in Suffolk.
