The story of a whirlwind week in 1937 NYC when a young aspiring actor (Zac Efron) is thrown into the middle of Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre Company on the eve of the opening of Welles' historic staging of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.

During this week, Richard will find romance with a worldly older woman (Claire Danes), become immersed in a creative experience few are afforded, and learn the downside of crossing the imperious, brilliant Welles (strikingly portrayed by newcomer Christian McKay).

Richard is about to grow up FAST.
