Saskatchewan filmmaker Robin Schlaht explores how several actors in different countries prepare to mount three different stage productions of the Shakespearean play Romeo and Juliet.

Emotional meltdowns, twisted ankles and cast mutinies are all part of what it takes to be Romeo and Juliet at a summer youth camp in Guelph, Ontario, at an amateur production in Reading, England and at a professional production at the Chilean National Theatre in Santiago.
