Al Pacino's staged reading of Oscar Wilde's "Salomé" with Jessica Chastain is chronicled. Pacino was filming the production at the Wadsworth Theater in Los Angeles as part of his plan to create a movie adaptation of Wilde's play. This documentary provides a behind-the-scenes look at Pacino and the then 29-year-old Chastain as they prepare to perform the play that tells the tragic story of Salomé, the step-daughter of King Herod and the woman who beheaded John the Baptist.
