Miranda is a theatre professor whose life has turned out less than satisfactory. A fall during a performance early in her acting career has left her in constant, seemingly incurable pain. Hoping to revisit the glory of her acting days by having her class stage Shakespeare's All's Well That Ends Well, she is met instead with a mutiny from her students, led by her least favourite undergrad--the devious Briana. Forced instead to put on Hamlet, Miranda is devastated at the duplicity of her students, underhandedness of her boss, and is consumed by frustration at the lack of control she has over her own body and life. But her path takes a sharp turn one evening when she's drowning her sorrows at the local pub. Three mysterious men in suits who seem to know everything about her offer to help her. After drinking a mysterious potion, she wakes up the next morning with no memory of the night before, and her chronic pain has lifted. Miranda's life starts falling into place: she is not only walking but running with ease; Briana has become gravely ill; and a twist of fate allows Miranda to stage her beloved All's Well That Ends Well. But as a lover of the Bard, Miranda should know that sudden streaks of luck always come at a price.
