As civil war comes to an end, the Scottish King Duncan’s generals, Macbeth and Banquo, meet three mysterious Sisters who prophesy that Macbeth will, one day, become King of Scotland. His ambition whetted, Macbeth is no longer satisfied to remain loyal to his sovereign; the seeds of deadly conspiracy are sown. Fate plays its part as the King decides to pay a visit to Macbeth’s castle, in tribute to his general’s wartime valour. Macbeth takes his wife, Lady Macbeth, into his confidence regarding the Sisters’ prophecy; together they hatch a plot to kill Duncan and implicate his servants in the murder. Events soon unravel and Macbeth and Lady Macbeth sink deeper into the morass of lies, conspiracy, murder and guilt that accompanies their illicit rise to power and, inevitably, their fall into darkness.
