In this classic Shakespearean story, long-time adversarial families the Capulets and the Montagues engage in a street brawl, which results in a decree declaring that the next conflict will be punishable by death. But during an opulent masked ball, young Romeo Montague (Laurence Harvey) falls in love with Juliet Capulet (Susan Shentall). With the family feud reignited, Juliet's cousin kills Romeo's friend, Mercutio (Ubaldo Zollo), placing the young lovers in grave danger.
