CHASING SHAKESPEARE Told in flashback from his wife's deathbed, "Chasing Shakespeare" protagonist William Ward (Danny Glover) dives under the gloomy waters of his memory to recall the love story of his life with Venus, a girl belonging to the Lighting Clan, a peculiar Native American family living in Arkansas with a strange communion with electricity.
