En 1891, à Paris, le facteur Joseph Roulin demande à son fils Armand de remettre une lettre à Théodorus van Gogh, le frère du peintre Vincent van Gogh qui s'est donné la mort. Armand est très récalcitrant : même si Van Gogh avait peint son portrait quelque temps plus tôt, Armand reste persuadé, comme la plupart des gens, que Vincent Van Gogh était un fou plus ou moins dangereux. Armand accepte à contrecœur pour faire plaisir à son père. Mais il apprend que le frère de l'artiste est mort quelques mois plus tard. La mission d'Armand semble ne plus avoir de sens, mais, dans l'intervalle, les premiers éléments qu'il a appris sur la mort du peintre lui ont donné envie d'en savoir plus. Dès lors, Armand se rend à Auvers-sur-Oise pour enquêter sur la vie intime et artistique de Vincent van Gogh.

Bill is set during Shakespeare's "lost years"—the crucial period, long a mystery to scholars, covering his rise from obscurity in Stratford-upon-Avon to fame as a playwright in London. According to the official synopsis, the film will tell the "real story" of what happens when "hopeless lute player Bill Shakespeare leaves his family and home to follow his dream. It’s a tale of murderous kings, spies, lost loves, and a plot to blow up Queen Elizabeth I." Writer Rickard further explained that this "very different" version of the future Bard has already tried "everything from contemporary dance to playing lute in a band. He's never found his calling.
