Precious Liars

A deep, rich friendship develops over many years between acclaimed painter Cassie Jugmaker and theatrical impresario Leo Berger Levin. As a colourful array of girlfriends moves through Cassie’s life, and a number of brilliant men become Leo’s lovers, they find they need each other just as much as they need their romantic partners.

Then they meet the mysterious street performer who will change both their lives: The Shakespeare Lady, at once comical and eerie. She recites passages from Hamlet for small change and bewitches all who see her. She becomes the inspiration for Cassie's most masterful cycle of paintings - but the more Cassie and Leo get to know her, the less they comprehend her...
