The Capulets and Montagues have long fought for power in Verona township, pitting neighbor against neighbor. A newly elected mayor promises a more peaceful era, but tensions only continue to rise. When Romeo--Montague's only son--and Juliet--Capulet's only daughter, meet by chance and fall in love, they secretly elope hoping it will bring the two families together. However, the best of intentions fast turn to bloodshed and our star-crossed lovers have no choice but to act quickly to stay together.
