Prince Hamlet returns to Denmark upon learning of his father's death to find his uncle seated on the throne and married to his own mother. When the ghost of Hamlet's father reveals to him that he was murdered and asks his son to avenge him, Hamlet must decide whether he is capable of betraying his conscience to honour his father. It is a dilemma which sets in motion a chain of tragic events, the result of attempting to maintain moral integrity in a world that is dark and corrupt.
