Vienna is crumbling – overrun with vice, riven with disease. The Duke, unable to cope, hands power to a deputy: the puritanical Angelo. Her solution is simple: all sex outside of marriage is to be banned. But when a young man called Claudio falls foul of her laws and is sentenced to death, he sends his sister - a nun called Isabella - to plead for him, and everything begins to unravel….
