Romeo and Juliet
Shakespeare's timeworn classic, revitalized for the reality-TV generation.
Shakespeare's "excellent and lamentable" tragedy becomes a multi-media game of risk and chance. A seemingly benevolent father-figure offers three young strangers the chance to follow in the footsteps of Shakespeare's young lovers. With four days to play and no rules or limits, watched by cameras and monitored on TV screens, the three innocents compete to sacrifice themselves in the name of the greatest love story ever told.
