Macbeth, a scottish lord, overthrows the good King Duncan. Three witches predicted that he's not in danger until the forest moves to his castle. But guilt destroys his wife's mind and his companions leave him alone. Furthermore, the english army is approaching Macbeth's castle.

A unique adaptation of a William Shakespeare play.
