August Strindberg's Miss Julie finds a new home in contemporary London.
Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them.
Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean. It descends into a savage fight for survival.
