Comic opera composers W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan fall into depression after their latest production flops miserably. Gilbert's marital problems and Sullivan's disillusionment with the comic medium further exacerbate their condition. Inspiration comes in the form of a Japanese art exhibit which motivates the pair to work on a grand production. With their passions reignited, the two patch up their differences and begin collaborating fervently on what promises to be the masterpiece of their careers.
