Summary

‘Only love brings happiness into this earth, the poetical love of youth, sweeping away the sorrows of the world.’

As guests assemble at a country house for the staging of an avant-garde open air play, artistic temperaments ignite a more entertaining drama behind the scenes, with romantic jealousies, self-doubt and the ruthless pursuit of happiness
