LOVE IS NEVER FAIR
Falling headlong in love, two teenagers defy the
long-simmering hatred between their families. But daring to love one’s enemy
comes with a terrible cost, as the needless sacrifice of young lives brings
this heartbreaking story to its tragic conclusion.
Two families of Verona, the Montagues and the Capulets, have long been embroiled in a bitter feud – but despite their parents’ enmity, Romeo (a Montague) and Juliet (a Capulet) fall in love at first sight.
The sympathetic Friar Laurence marries them in secret – then, when Romeo is banished for his part in a fatal street brawl, conceives a daring scheme to reunite them. But for these two “star-crossed lovers,” love and death seem fated to entwine in a tragic embrace.
