A famous actor, after suffering a heart attack, invites his two daughters from Belgium and France. Trying to find a way to keep them by his side, he suggests them to stage an adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth for three actors. During the rehearsals, some ugly truths come to the surface, concerning a father who was always absent and utterly dedicated to his art. In turn, he challenges his daughters to channel this traumatic past into their performances. Through the intimacy created by the successive rehearsal, the psychological breaches deepen.
