In this ‘spirited’ comedy, television star Andrew Rally moves back to New York when he’s cast as Hamlet - but nothing goes right. Faced with crippling self-doubt, lucrative offers of shallow TV shows, and a girlfriend who won’t fully commit to him, it takes a supernatural intervention by the ghost of his apartment’s former resident - legendary actor John Barrymore - to help Andrew confront the challenges of life on stage (and behind closed doors).
