Romeo and Juliet's classic tale is set in Verona Beach, a contemporary city. Two feuding families are the Montagues and Capulets. Their children fall in love and meet. Because their parents won't allow them to live together, they have to keep their love secret from the rest of the world. They face many obstacles along the way like Tybalt, Juliet's cousin and Mercutio (Romeo's best friend) and many battles. It is set in contemporary times but it still tells the timeless tale of "star-crossed lovers".
