A Shakespearean Tragedy

The story follows the aging King Lear of Britain, who decides to divide his kingdom among his three daughters based on their declarations of love for him. However, his youngest and most beloved daughter, Cordelia, refuses to flatter him as her sisters do, leading Lear to disown her. As Lear’s decision unfolds, he faces betrayal, cruelty, and the loss of his sanity.
