    Love is a Dream.

    And dreams are too real.

    In an enchanted wood, four lovers flee Athens, unaware that their romantic squabbles and parental difficulties will soon be overshadowed by magic. The king and queen of the fairies, Titania and Oberon, pit their wits and wills against one another, in the process turning all into libidinous lunatics while Titania herself falls in love with a buffoon turned ass. Throw in a group of simple rustics rehearsing a play and a mischievous fairy named Puck into the ensuing chaos, and this hilarious romp proves “the course of true love never did run smooth.”
