Four days before the auction of all of the studio's possessions, Maxwell and his secretary discover that Lillian Harper, one of the brightest stars in Hollywood, is still under contract to their studio. Maxwell hatches a plan to reunite two of his biggest stars to remake Romeo and Juliet in a last ditch effort to save his studio.
