A contemporary metropolis is mired in vice and its leader (The Duchess) is at her wits' end. She retreats for a time and installs the pious Angelo as caretaker leader. To make the city clean again, Angelo restores the fornication law. First to fall foul of this hastily reinstated rule is Claudio. Claudio’s girlfriend is pregnant and as they’re not married, Claudio now must be punished by death. Claudio’s sister, Isabella, is pure and chaste and ready to take holy vows as a nun. She beseeches sanctimonious Angelo to spare her beloved brother. Angelo agrees, but only if Isabella sacrifices her virginity and vocation for him. Will she compromise her body and values to save her brother? Will the love of power always ride roughshod over the people? Will order be restored?
