Young Hamlet returns home from university to discover the world-shattering news that not only is her father newly dead, but her mother has married Claudius, Hamlet's uncle - making Claudius King. Late one night, the ghost of Hamlet's father appears to her, accusing Claudius of his murder and urging Hamlet to revenge, a goal in which she is only too happy to partake, setting into motion a train of events that destroys the royal family and nation of Denmark.
