Everyone lives life wearing a mask. This is the love story of a young man and woman (Nemorino and Adina) who live in a peaceful village. At the mercy of an arrogant sergeant (Belcore) and a quack doctor (Dulcamara) from outside the village, their love story oscillates between true feelings and public facades. With the two each going through episodes of anxiety about love, learning about love, talking about love, and selling out to love, the fate of their romance is put in the hands of the power of an “elixir of love” (L’elisir d’amore”). However, this elixir is slightly different from the one that brought Tristan and Isolde together once and for all, as it is merely wine that Dulcamara peddles as a love potion….
