Synopsis / Plot
The surface of ceremonies and rituals celebrating the coronation of King Claudius and his marriage to Hamlet's mother leaves the young prince indifferent. Hamlet's melancholic nature finds no relief from his brooding, not even in his courtship of Ophelia. However, a nocturnal visit from his father's ghost changes everything. Claudius treachery having been brought to light, Hamlet conducts a quest to avenge his father's death.
