Love at First Sight. From first shy glance, to a stolen moment away from disapproving eyes, to whirlwind romance that races to a dire conclusion, two love-struck teenagers risk everything to be together. Caught between their feuding families, Romeo and Juliet struggle to overcome generations of hatred and build a world where their love can thrive. Twists and tragedy hinder their desire to be together until they decide to take a chance on a daring scheme that hurtles them to their final fate.
Tumbling headlong in love. The story of Romeo and Juliet is a series of escalating events that lead to desperate outcomes. Intense passions rage on both sides with love mirroring hate. The choice to embrace your enemy comes at a terrible cost for these two young people and also for their community.
