In 1897, two different actresses, Sarah Bernhardt and Eleonora Duse, were both to perform

Their respective co-stars, Gustave-Hippolite Worms and Flavio Ando, are caught in the actresses' melodrama and competition. However, a Russian anarchist named Ivan decides to take the two actresses hostage and threatens to blow up the theater if two of his comrades are not released from prison.
