    16th Century Spain. Gifted young playwright Lope de Vega returns to Madrid from the war filled with ambition, eager to live, to write, to make his dreams a reality. Penniless, he is forced to work as a humble copyist. Lope falls for Elena, his boss's ravishing daughter. Her well-connected father, who runs the most successful theatre troupe in the city, would never approve of the liaison, so the affair is kept secret.

    But Elena has another secret: she's already married. When Lope finds out, he asks her to end her marriage and make their love public. Elena refuses. Wounded, he is tempted to play along with the one woman who can bring his vision to the stage, but his passion burns stronger than his ambition, and he publicly exposes the hypocrisy of Elena and her father.
