With her father, the Duke, banished and in exile, Rosalind and her cousin Celia leave their lives in the court behind them to live in the forest. Released from social convention, Rosalind conceals her identity by posing as a man, and through the freedom this gives her experiences the liberating rush of transformation, falling spectacularly in love.
