The young and virtuous physician's daughter Helena desperately loves Count Bertram, but he regards her as beneath his notice. When Helena cures the King of France of a mortal illness, he rewards her with Bertram's hand, but before their marriage can be consummated the Count flees. To win her husband back again, Helena forms a daring and resourceful plan. A plot to unmask the strutting soldier Parolles makes up another strand in this sometimes distrubing comedy of deception and disguise.
