Shakespeare's classic tale of love and loss comes to the great outdoors! Romeo and Juliet come from rival families, but quickly find that their love runs deeper than the divisions between them. With the help of loyal friends, these star-crossed lovers seek to overcome the hate that keeps them apart, but escaping from the vicious cycle may end up being impossible.
