In medieval Japan, powerful Hidetora decides to abdicate and distribute his dominions amongst his three sons. The youngest thinks that the idea is absurd, and that it will only cause problems.  Furious, his father disinherits him. Hidetora will soon discover his mistake: his two older sons, driven by ambition, will fight for power in a cruel war. The film is inspired by Shakespeare’s play King Lear.

The objective of this first festival, co-organised by the Malaga City and Provincial Councils, aims to disseminate pre-20th century theatrical heritage, with a special focus on Spain’s Golden Age, in the city and the province of Malaga. By combining theatrical performances with film screenings and training, the festival also seeks to foster encounters with professionals of the sector and to enhance the value and comprehension of classical theater. Each show is geared at a specific audience, including all audiences, young people and adults.
