After winning a war for Scotland, Macbeth runs into 3 witches that predict that he will be named Thane of Glamis, Thane of Cawdor, and be named King.
When Malcom, King Duncan's son, is named next in line for King Macbeth gets angry. His ambition rises to become King.
King Duncan announces that he will be staying the night at Macbeth's castle. When Lady Macbeth hears this she persuades Macbeth into murdering the King.
Macbeth then murders King Duncan that night and blames it on the servants, who he also kills so they can't defend themselves. When Malcolm and Donalbain hear this they flee to England and Ireland, concerned with their own safety.
Macbeth is then crowned King, like he wanted. Macbeth then proceeds to hire murderers to kill Banquo and his son Fleance, because Macbeth doesn't want Banquo's heirs to be named King in the future.
Macbeth has a banquet that night and Macduff isn't there, so Macbeth gets suspicious of this. He starts acting crazy and Lady Macbeth blames it on an illness and asks everyone to leave.
