Before Citizen Kane and The War of the Worlds, leading Broadway actress Rose McClendon and producer John Houseman convince a gifted but untested 20-year-old Orson Welles to direct Shakespeare's Macbeth with an all-Black cast in Harlem. Reimagined in a Haitian setting, this revolutionary 1936 production, which came to be known as "Voodoo Macbeth," would change the world forever, but the road to opening night proves to be a difficult one. Orson and Rose - who is to play Lady Macbeth - clash over everything from scene blocking to crew hires, while Houseman contends with a congressman hell-bent on shutting down what he deems "communist propaganda." Welles and McClendon must overcome political pressure, personal demons, and protests to realize their groundbreaking vision
