Another film adaptation of the world-famous play, which tells about the treachery of loved ones and the gullibility of the protagonist. At the center of the story is the elderly King Lear, noticing how quickly his power is waning. Fearing anarchy in the kingdom, the ruler decides to divide his powers between his three own daughters. But a man has a condition: heiresses must publicly show him their respect and prove love. The two older heroines decide to flattery and get the approval of their father, and the younger one does not want to be hypocritical for personal gain, considering it vile. Because of this attitude, she first falls out of favor with the king, and then completely becomes an outcast. In the meantime, the elder sisters of the exiled, having gained power, immediately overthrow their father. Having seized the throne, they begin to persecute it until Lear repeats the fate of the youngest daughter, forced to survive with the stigma of an outcast ... The film is saturated with that magical drama that the works of the great Shakespeare have not yet lost. The plot has remained practically unchanged, but the audience, already familiar with Lear's story, will be surprised at the end of the narrative.
