Synopsis: The story of the plot centers on Angelo who has been empowered by the Duke of Vienna to rule, while he wanders disguised as a Friar, to investigate the moral corruption and decay of his city. Angelo enforces an old law of the city against pre-marital sex, and condemns Claudio, a young gentleman, to death for fornication. Claudio’s sister, Isabella, pleads for her brother’s life. Angelo’s lust is aroused and he attempts to blackmail Isabella into having sex with him. Fortunately, the Duke overhears and now takes control of the action.
