Harris is obsessed: with Shakespeare's play Measure for Measure; and with the woman playing Isabella in his film version of it. Perdita, doing makeup for Harris' film, is convinced that a friend's death was not suicide. Portland, Oregon stands in for Shakespeare's seedy Vienna as Harris seeks redemption from a bad marriage through art and love, and Perdita plays novice detective.
